Leicester City defender Ben Chilwell has signed a new long term deal at the club. The left back has agreed to fresh terms and has put pen to paper to a new six year contract which will extend his stay till 2024.
The 21 year old came through the ranks of the Foxes and is now looking to make it count on the big stage. The defender recently made his debut for England against Switzerland and now has been rewarded for his consistent performance.
Leicester already awarded Harry Maguire with a new contract following interest from Manchester United and now Chilwell has also committed his future to the club.
The 21 year old said, “Leicester’s always felt like the right place for me. I’ve had fantastic support at every level since I arrived nine years ago and I’ve always felt opportunities would come if I continued to work hard.
“That’s a great feeling to have as a young player. The club has really big, long-term plans and it’s really exciting to know that I’m going to be part of that.
“We’ve got a great squad with quite a youthful core so there’s a real opportunity for us to push on and achieve something together in the coming years.”
