Leicester City defender Sean St. Ledger is eager to sign a new contract with the Foxes, despite being told he was surplus to requirement this summer. 

The Republic of Ireland international has one year left on his current contract and after starting both games for the Foxes this season, has said he would love to continue his career at the East Midlands club for longer.

St. Ledger told BBC Radio Leicester this week: "I am really, really happy here. It's a great football club. We'll see what happens. I will try to earn a new contract."

As Financial Fair Play regulations beckon, the Foxes have been trying to cut back on their wage bill - a plan that has already seen high earners Matt Mills and Jermaine Beckford move to Bolton Wanderers.

St. Ledger spent the end of last season on loan with Millwall, and is believed to be on a higher wage than the club would like.

"There have been a lot of changes and the club have to make a lot of cut-backs. The manager just said to me to get on with it and see what happens," added St. Ledger.

"I will give my all for the club in the time I have left."
Leicester have played two, won two so far this season, with wins over Middlesbrough in the Championship and Wycombe in the League Cup to open the account for Nigel Pearson's side.
