Defender Paul Konchesky will stay Leicester City until the end of next season after penning a new deal.

The 32-year-old left-back, who joined the Foxes in 2011 from Liverpool, has agreed terms on a fresh 18-month contract.

He said: "I've said for some time that Leicester is where I want to play my football so I'm really pleased that we've been able to agree a deal that works for me and for the Club.

"I've really enjoyed playing here over the last three seasons and I'd love to make sure the next one is in the Premier League.

"As a squad we're determined to make the most of the good position we've got ourselves in, so it's important we kick on now."

City manager Nigel Pearson added: "Paul has been an important member of the squad in the last three seasons, achieving a very consistent level of performance, so I'm really pleased we've been able to keep him with us beyond this season.

"He is one of the more experienced members of our squad, an outstanding professional and a great character to have on the pitch and in the dressing room."

The former England international has made 25 appearances this season for the Championship leaders.
