Jeffrey Schlupp has committed his future to Leicester by signing a new deal which will keep him at the club until the summer of 2019.

The 22-year-old Ghana international, who has been linked with Arsenal, Manchester United and Aston Villa in recent weeks, played a key role in the Foxes' successful Barclays Premier League survival last season and has been rewarded for his efforts.

A statement issued via the club's official website, www.lcfc.com, said: "Jeffrey Schlupp has committed his future to Leicester City by signing a new contract to keep him at King Power Stadium until June 2019.

"The 22-year-old Ghana international enjoyed an outstanding debut season in the Barclays Premier League, which culminated in a double triumph at the club's end of season awards, where he won the Players' Player and Young Player of the Year titles."
