Leicester City defender Ben Chilwell signs new five-year deal with Foxes

Ben Chilwell will stay with the Premier League champions.

Defender Ben Chilwell signed a new five-year contract at Leicester City on Thursday.

Chilwell, 19, had been linked to a move to Liverpool but has now tied his future to the King Power Stadium until 2021.

The full-back had been entering the final year of his contract at Leicester.

Chilwell played in two FA Cup matches last season after a loan to Huddersfield, but he could not displace Christian Fuchs in the Premier League-winning Foxes side.

"It's fantastic news for us. Ben is a player with a big future and I am very happy that future will be with Leicester City," Claudio Ranieri told the club's official website.

"Ever since I arrived in Leicester, Ben has been a young player that has shown a lot of promise. He has all the attributes you would want in a defender and shows a lot of maturity for a player of just 19.

"He has come back for preseason in very good condition and is already showing that he is ready to push for a place in the team."

Chilwell made three appearances in cup competitions last season, either side of a loan spell at Huddersfield Town, but he is yet to make his Premier League debut.
