Full-back Christian Fuchs has signed a new contract that ties him to Leicester City until June 2019, the Premier League champions have announced.

The Austria international has made 45 appearances since joining Leicester on a free transfer before the start of last season.

Fuchs was an influential figure in Leicester’s astonishing run to the Premier League title and has been an ever present this term, where the club have faltered domestically but won three from three on their Champions League debut.

“I’m happy. I’m committed to the club. We had a great last season and we’ve also done well so far this season in the Champions League,” he said.

“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.”

Fuchs joins the likes of Jamie Vardy, Riyad Mahrez, Wes Morgan and Kasper Schmeichel in committing his long-term future to Claudio Ranieri’s side since their march to glory last term.
