Published Add your comment

Leicester striker Steve Howard has signed a new contract to keep him at the club until June 2012.

The 34-year-old has scored three goals this season, including the winner at Leeds in midweek to give Sven-Goran Eriksson his first victory as manager.

Executive director Aiyawatt Raksriaksorn believes Howard epitomises all the qualities that will help Leicester get back into the Premier League, and he told the club's official website: "Steve is a very determined player and he has the character we are looking for at the club as we strive to progress."

Raksriaksorn added: "We are delighted that Steve has agreed to sign and we are all hoping that he can continue to display his good form for the team and help to move us in the right direction up the division."

Howard added: "I am very pleased to have signed this new deal. The faith shown in me by Leicester is something I am keen to repay. I pledge to give my all for the supporters to help the club get back where we belong."
