Leicester City boss Nigel Pearson has persuaded Jeffrey Schlupp to pen a new deal that will keep the Ghana international at the club until June 2019.
The 22-year-old won both the Players’ Player and Young Player of the Year titles in 2014/15 after enjoying a superb campaign – scoring four goals in 35 appearances for the Foxes.
Schlupp came through the youth team ranks at Leicester and made his first-team debut, as a striker, in the 2011/12 campaign, after enjoying a spell on loan at Brentford the previous season.
He made his debut in a League Cup tie at Rotherham United in August 2011, scoring a hat-trick, and went on to score six times in 26 appearances in 2011/12 as well as earning his first cap for Ghana.
Schlupp made 19 Championship appearances in 2012/13 before becoming a regular at left-back in the next season, scoring once in 26 games.
Included in his four goals last term was the equaliser in a 2-2 draw with Liverpool.
Leicester can be backed at 4.50 to be relegated next season, while they are 13.00 to finish bottom of the table and 1.20 to finish in the bottom half of the table.
