Leicester have agreed a contract extension with midfielder Andy King, keeping him with the Foxes until June 2015.

A central figure in the City squad in the four years since he graduated from the club's academy, the 22-year-old Welsh international becomes the latest Foxes player to commit his long-term future to the Club, agreeing a one-year extension to a long-term deal signed last year.

King told the club's official website: "It has always been my ambition to play Premier League football and it is obvious that Leicester City are heading in that direction."

He added: "I am delighted that I will have the chance to help achieve that ambition.

"The owners and the manager have big ambitions for the Club, so knowing they want me to be here in the long term is a great feeling, especially as I only signed a new deal last year."

King, City's current leading scorer with 14 goals this season, follows team-mates Paul Gallagher, Richie Wellens and Matt Oakley in extending his stay at the Walkers Stadium, as the club look for a return to the Premier League under manager Sven-Goran Eriksson.
