Gray closing in on new Leicester deal

The Mail Online understands that Demarai Gray is finally set to put pen to paper on a new contract with Leicester City.

The winger has long been in talks over a new deal at the King Power Stadium having been linked with a move away from the Foxes in the summer, when both Bournemouth and Crystal Palace both failing in approaches for the player.

Gray signed for Leicester half way through their title-winning 2015/16 campaign, making twelve league appearances that season while he has played over fifty times since, scoring four goals – the latest of which coming in Sunday’s 2-0 win over Everton.

That result gave Claude Puel victory in his first game in charge of the club since replacing Craig Shakespeare in the dugout, and lifted Leicester to eleventh in the table.

They travel to Stoke City on Saturday and can be backed at a price of 15/8 to win.
