Leicester City FC have announced that manager Brendan Rodgers has signed a new contract to stay with them until June 2025.

It comes following speculation that Rodgers would move to Arsenal. It was reported that the club made "tentative enquiries" to Leicester FC about their manager.

On signing his new contract Rodgers said: When I made the decision to come to Leicester City, it was because I was excited about the direction the Club was taking and how I could apply my experience to the journey.

"I came here with a purpose to add something to that and to help the Club build for the future."

“And to the Club’s supporters, I can only say thank you for welcoming me and my staff into your Club and for putting your faith in our work. We’ll continue to work together to bring success to Leicester City for many years to come.”

“Brendan’s qualities as a coach are well-known and evident in the way he has sought to unlock the potential in every member of our exciting young squad.“But just as important to us is the suitability of Brendan’s wider philosophy to the Club’s established culture and values. He and his staff immersed themselves immediately, building an understanding for the Club and the city and an appreciation for what makes them special. “That has been a valuable combination over the last nine months – strengthening the bond between our players, staff and supporters – and I’m excited to see how it can continue to enhance our long-term vision for the Club.”
