Harry Maguire signs new five-year deal with Leicester City

Leicester City have announced the signing of a new five-year contract by Harry Maguire.

The 25-year-old joined Leicester from Hull City in the summer of 2017 and impressed for the Foxes during the 2017-18 campaign before playing a major role in England's charge to the semi-finals of the World Cup in Russia.

Manchester United were strongly linked with the Englishman during the summer transfer window, but Leicester at the end of the day refused to sell the central defender.

The Foxes have now announced that Maguire has penned a new contract until the summer of 2023.

In an interview with LCFC TV Maguire said: “Ever since I came to this club, I've always reiterated how good they've been to me. They gave me an opportunity to play in the Premier League and built a great platform for me to go and perform at the World Cup, so I thank them a lot. I owe them a lot and I'm looking forward to the future.”

Maguire got his 13th England cap in the UEFA Nations League which held on Saturday where they lost 2-1 to Spain.
