Rodgers signs new Leicester contract amid Arsenal links
Brendan Rodgers has put paid to rumours linking him with a move to Arsenal, signing a new five-and-a-half year deal which will keep him at Leicester until 2025.
The Foxes have emerged as top-four contenders this season, following on from a brilliant end to the 2018-19 campaign after he took over in February.
"When I made the decision to come to Leicester City, it was because I was excited about the direction the Club was taking and how I could apply my experience to the journey. I came here with a purpose to add something to that and to help the Club build for the future," he said.
"The support I have had from the Chairman, Khun Top; from the Chief Executive, Susan Whelan; from the Director of Football, Jon Rudkin; and from everyone at the Club has been amazing.
"I’ve inherited an outstanding team of staff that are dedicated to progress and improvement and we have a group of players that are a joy to work with every day."
Leicester have won their last seven matches in all competitions
