Speaking to Leicester City TV after signing the new contract, the former Manchester United defender said :


“I’m absolutely delighted to have signed. I’m delighted to commit myself to the Club, and delighted the Club have committed themselves to me.

“I’ve loved it here since the first day I came in. It’s a great atmosphere around the place and it’s a Club with a lot of ambition.


“The players are ambitious and the signings that they’ve made over the years, they’ve signed young, hungry players and it’s been great for me to come in alongside that and be a part of it.”

Johnny Evans, 32, has played 15 matches for Leicester this season, with Brendan Rodgers’ side sitting third in the Premier League table going into the New Year.
