London - Marc Albrighton has become the latest Leicester City player to commit himself to the club after the Premier League champions announced he had signed a new four-year contract on Tuesday.

The 26-year-old former Aston Villa winger played a key role in Leicester's 5,000-1 title triumph last season.

He follows Jamie Vardy, Danny Drinkwater, Riyad Mahrez, Wes Morgan, Kasper Schmeichel and manager Claudio Ranieri in signing a new contract at the King Power Stadium.

"I just think there's a really good feeling around the place," Albrighton told the Leicester website after tying himself to the club until 2020.

"Everyone seems to want to stay at the club and I think that's a massive credit to how far the club has come in the last few years.

"It's exciting times for Leicester City Football Club and I want to be a part of that."

Albrighton joined Leicester from Villa on a free transfer in 2014 and has made 65 appearances, scoring four goals.
