The forward has fallen down the pecking order over the last year, and even declared he would never play for Leicester again after a January spat with former manager Claudio Ranieri.
Thanks to all the fans at LCFC. Two wonderful years but I need to feel like a footballer again.— Jose Leonardo Ulloa (@Ciclone1923) January 28, 2017
Since then, however, he has seemed settle back in and enjoy his time with the Foxes.
Ulloa has featured on occasion under Craig Shakespeare but is still presumably behind a number of forwards on the depth chart. They include: Jamie Vardy, Shinji Okazaki, Kelechi Iheanacho, and Islam Slimani.
What this extension could mean for Slimani, however, is an interesting topic. Could it mean the end of his time with Leicester? The answer isn’t immediately clear but it certainly seems plausible.
Ulloa, for his part, appears ecstatic to remain with the club.
“I am so so happy because, you know, I have lived massive moments with this club,” he said. “I am happy to stay here and fight for play and to help the team and the club increase its history.”
We’re happy to have you Leo!
Now everybody please reminisce and enjoy some of Leo’s best moments with the club.
