Craig Shakespeare has signed a three-year contract to become Leicester's permanent manager, the club have announced.

The Foxes had been in talks with Shakespeare since the end of the season last month and have now struck a deal after he took over on a short-term basis in February.

Shakespeare told the club's official site: "This is a really exciting opportunity for me to continue along this new path in my career and to continue to work with a club and a group of staff I've grown extremely close to. I'm grateful to the owners and the board of directors for their continued faith and support."
