Key members of backroom staff both Craig and Steve have become "vital components" in the Club’s football management since returning to King Power Stadium in November 2011.

With Craig taking a lead coaching role and Steve taking up the Club’s player recruitment process, the pair have helped "lay the foundations both for the Club’s unprecedented recent success and for its exciting future."

When I arrived at Leicester, I could never have expected to find a group of staff so well equipped to take a Club forward. Craig and Steve have been very important to this and I am very pleased to have had their support in understanding the players and helping them to understand my philosophy.

They are great men doing fantastic jobs for Leicester City and I am very happy that they have committed further with the Football Club.

– Leicester City manager Claudio Ranieri

Leicester City Director of Football Jon Rudkin said: "We’re absolutely delighted that they have agreed new contracts as part of our journey going forward.”
