Wes Morgan: Commits future to Leicester

Leicester City captain Wes Morgan has signed a brand-new three-year deal to stay with the Premier League champions until the summer of 2019.

The 32-year-old defender, who played every minute of the club’s remarkable charge to glory, has committed his future to the club as he prepares for a title defence and Champions League football.

Morgan said: “To commit my future to Leicester City is a wonderful feeling. Everyone knows how I feel about playing for this club and with my team-mates, so I’m proud to have the chance to carry on wearing the shirt long term.

“Lifting that Premier League trophy was a moment I will never forget and it’s still sinking in. Now we’ve got to give it everything to defend it, as well as showing what we can do in the Champions League.”

Claudio Ranieri added: “Wes is a leader and a warrior. I’m so happy that he’s committed his future to Leicester.”

“It’s a wonderful time to be part of this team. Last season was so special and Wes was fantastic. Now we have another huge season ahead of us and we need him.”
