Hammond signs new Leicester deal
Leicester midfielder Dean Hammond has signed a new contract with the club after his previous deal expired.
The 32-year-old made just 12 appearances in the club's Premier League survival battle last season and was out of contract at the end of June but will stay on for another 12 months.
"Dean, whose previous deal expired on Tuesday, has agreed terms on a one-year extension and will report for pre-season training with the squad next week," said a statement on Leicester's official website.
Hammond joins Marcin Wasilewski and Jeffrey Schlupp among those players to agree new contracts with the club, who are now searching for a manager after sacking Nigel Pearson earlier this week.
