Jamaican defensive maestro Wes Morgan, who led English Premier League champions Leicester City to their first ever title, has signed a new contract to stay on at the King Power Stadium until June 2019.

The 32-year-old captain's extended contract could see him staying until his retirement.

Since the Jamaica international joined the Foxes, Morgan has made 196 appearances for the Foxes and has scored eight goals.

After penning his new deal, the defender said: "Everyone knows how I feel about playing for this club and with my teammates, so I’m proud to have the chance to carry on wearing the shirt long term.

Morgan who joined the Foxes from Nottingham Forest in 2012, played every minute of the club's 2015/2016 league winning campaign.

"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."
