Leicester City winger Marc Albrighton has signed a contract extension with the club that will tie him down until 2024. Albrighton helped Leicester beat Chelsea in the FA Cup final at Wembley. He joined Leicester from Aston Villa in 2014 and was part of the squad that won the Premier League in 2015-16. The winger made 42 appearances for Leicester City in all competitions last season.
“I’m delighted. Obviously, it’s a club that is progressing every single year,” said Marc Albrighton after signing a contract extension with Leicester. “It’s a fantastic club with the people here and the direction that they’re going – it’s great to be a part of. I have always been the type of player and person who wants to establish himself at a club and stay there. I’m settled here and I’m really enjoying it.”
Leicester have recently begun work on increasing the capacity of the king power stadium. The club are planning on increasing the capacity of the stadium by 8000 more seats.
“The unveiling of these plans represents a significant milestone in the long history of Leicester City Football Club, and one that we hope will continue to put our supporters and our community at the heart of its long-term future.” Leicester City chairman, Aiyawatt Srivaddhanaprabha, said about the King Power stadium. “Through the consultation with our fans, our local community, businesses, and stakeholders, we hope to achieve something that we can all be proud of for years to come. It’s these conversations that will help us communicate our vision to the people at its heart and take on board the views of our community to help shape it.”
