Leicester defender Christian Fuchs has signed a new contract with the club that runs to the summer of 2019, the Premier League champions have announced.

Fuchs penned a three-year deal with the Foxes when he joined them on a free transfer in June 2015, went on to play a key role in their remarkable surge to the title, and has started every league and Champions League game for them so far this term.

The 30-year-old Austrian full-back told LCFC TV: "I'm happy. I'm committed to the club. We had a great last season and we've also done well so far this season in the Champions League (Leicester have won all three of their fixtures in the competition to date).

"I'm happy here and I've had the best time of my career so far here. My name is the Austrian Fox and now I'm staying with the English Foxes.

"Nobody expected what we achieved so far and I think there's still a lot to come.

"We built a good foundation and I think we can aim for more. It's a lot of fun being here and it's amazing with the fans.

"Them and the club itself just makes me feel so happy to be here."
