De Laet commits to Foxes

Leicester defender Ritchie De Laet has signed a new four-year contract with the club.

The 25-year-old Belgian has started all 11 of the Foxes' Barclays Premier League games this season.

De Laet told the club's official website: "I'm so happy to sign a new deal here at Leicester.

"Leicester took a risk with me at the start when they brought me here without a lot of experience and they stuck with me, so now I'm doing the same thing with them."

De Laet joined the Foxes in May 2012 from Manchester United following a series of extended loan spells.

He made two appearances for his country in the Kirin Cup in Japan in 2009.
