Leicester have extended midfielder Matt Oakley's contract until June 2012.

The 33-year-old has been club captain for the last three seasons and will remain a part of manager Sven-Goran Eriksson's plans for next term.

Eriksson told the club's official website: "I am very happy we have agreed an extension with Matt."

He added: "He is not only a good football player but he is an excellent professional.


"It is important for us to have people like Matt around the club, especially as we often have a young team out on the pitch.

"He has a positive influence on his colleagues and his experience in the game will be invaluable for us."
