Leicester City’s Jeffrey Schlupp has agreed a new contract with the club, which will keep him at the King Power Stadium until 2019.
The Ghana international’s previous deal was due to expire in 2017, but he has been handed fresh terms following an impressive debut season in the top flight under Nigel Pearson.
Despite coming through the club’s academy as a striker, Schlupp was asked to feature on the wing and at left-back as Leicester beat the drop by six points.
Schlupp, who missed out on featuring at the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations due to a knee injury, scored four goals in 35 appearances last term.
His contract renewal will serve as a further boost for Pearson, who has been able to bolster his squad with the acquisitions of defender Robert Huth, full-back Christian Fuchs and striker Shinji Okazaki.
Poland international Marcin Wasilewski also agreed an initial one-year extension in June.
