Marc Albrighton has become the latest player to commit his future to Leicester, signing a new four-year deal to keep him at the club until 2020.

Signed from his boyhood Aston Villa on a free-transfer in 2014, Albrighton went on to become a regular in the Leicester side, his outstanding work rate on both sides of the ball and excellent crossing ability earning him a consistent starting spot in Claudio Ranieri's title-winning side.

Albrighton has joined captain Wes Morgan, Jamie Vardy, Riyad Mahrez, Andy King, Danny Drinkwater, Kasper Schmeichel, Ben Chilwell, and manager Ranieri in the signing of a new contract this summer as the Foxes look to make their first appearance in the Champions League.

It's great to see another player being rewarded for their superb efforts this past season, specifically one who's rarely acknowledged in the media for their efforts.

Overall he's a useful player to have in the squad, his tireless work-rate something that clearly suits the Leicester mentality. Looking foreword to the next four years, Marc!
