Riyad Mahrez has signed a new four-year contract with Leicester, tying him to the club until June 2019.

The 24-year-old Algeria international midfielder has made over 50 appearances for the Foxes since signing from French side Le Havre in January 2014.

City announced the contract extension after Mahrez impressed last term as they stayed in the Premier League.

"Leicester City are delighted to announce that we have agreed terms with Algerian international Riyad Mahrez on a contract extension to June 2019," Leicester said on their official website.

Mahrez is poised to make his 50th league appearance for the Foxes in Saturday's Premier League season opener with Sunderland at the King Power Stadium.

Odemwingie extends Stoke contract by another year

Peter Odemwingie flashed a big thumbs-up and an even bigger smile as he signed a one year extension to his Stoke City contract.

The Nigerian forward once famously turned up at QPR's Loftus Road ground on deadline day, only to be told by his club at the time, West Brom, that he wasn't going anywhere.

Stoke are also reportedly in talks with former Bayern Munich winger Xherdan Shaqiri after agreeing a £12m fee with Inter Milan for his signature.

Northampton Town have given a second chance to disgraced Leicester City goalkeeper Adam Smith, after he was recently sacked by Leicester City for his part in a sex tape on their tour of Thailand.

The Cobbler's have signed the 22-year-old on a two-year-deal, subject to a medical.

Smith joined Leicester City in 2010 and spent five years with the Foxes, but had loan spells with six clubs including Cambridge and Stevenage.

"I'm aware that this signing will create debate. Adam was involved in an incident at Leicester that was very wrong and he knows that better than anyone. He paid a price for that, he has apologised and is ashamed of what happened.He is a very good goalkeeper, and one who needs to be in and around a first team place to push himself forward and I am sure he will prove a good addition."
