Published on:

Danny DrinkwaterLeicester City midfielder Daniel Drinkwater has officially signed a new 5-year contract with the club.

Drinkwater has been under the radar of major clubs this summer after he played a pivotal role in Leicester City’s Premier League triumph last season.

Earlier, last week Danny Drinkwater had rejected a new contract from the defending champions Leicester City, but now the talented midfielder has decided to stay put at the club and has signed a long term deal which will keep him at the club until 2021.

Drinkwater becomes the latest player to commit his future to the Foxes after  Riyad Mahrez, Jamie Vardy and Kasper Schmeichel also signed new long-term contracts with the reigning Premier League champions.

Talking to the club’s official website, Drinkwater said: “I’ve loved playing for this club, it’s been perfect for me and my career and I want to be here for a long time to come. I couldn’t be happier.”

“I’ve grown a lot as a player and a person in the last four years and Leicester City has been a massive part of that. I owe a lot to the staff here for helping me get to this point – they’ve been quality. And I love being part of this team. We’ve been through so much together and I’m sure there’s a lot more to come.”

Manager Claudio Ranieri added: “Ever since I joined Leicester City, Danny has been one of our most consistent players. He’s a fantastic player and a fantastic man.

“He’s an important player for us and a very popular player in the dressing room. I want him to stay with us for a very long time.”
