Drinkwater commits to Foxes

New five-year deal for midfielder

Danny Drinkwater has signed a new five-year deal with Premier League champions.

Drinkwater was one of the stars of the Foxes' title success last season but there were fears that he was considering rejecting the club's offer of a new contract.

Manager Claudio Ranieri was confident the midfielder would follow in the footsteps of Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez in penning new deals and the 26-year-old has now committed his future to the club.

The new deal will see Drinkwater remain at the King Power Stadium until 2021.

“I’ve loved playing for this club, it’s been perfect for me and my career and I want to be here for a long time to come. I couldn’t be happier," Drinkwater told the club's official website.

“I’ve grown a lot as a player and a person in the last four years and Leicester City has been a massive part of that. I owe a lot to the staff here for helping me get to this point – they’ve been quality.

“And I love being part of this team. We’ve been through so much together and I’m sure there’s a lot more to come.”

Drinkwater moved to Leicester from Manchester United in 2012 and helped the club earn promotion to the top flight in 2014.
