Leicester City left-back Christian Fuchs has committed his long term future by signing a new deal, keeping him at the King Power Stadium until June 2019.

The 30-year-old defender, who joined the Foxes from Schalke 04 back in 2015 – was a key figure in the club’s shocking Premier League title triumph last season

The former Austria international has made 45 appearances for Claudio Ranieri’s side, starting every league and Champions League fixture this season.

“I’m happy. I’m committed to the club,” the left-back told LCFC TV. “We had a great last season and we’ve also done well so far this season in the Champions League.

“I’m happy here and I’ve had the best time of my career so far here. My name is the Austrian Fox and now I’m staying with the English Foxes.

“Nobody expected what we achieved so far and I think there’s still a lot to come. We built a good foundation and I think we can aim for more. It’s a lot of fun being here and it’s amazing with the fans. Them and the club itself just makes me feel so happy to be here.”

Leicester have struggled this season, having won just two of their eight meetings of the campaign so far, finding themselves 13th in the standings.
