Morgan Signs Three Year Deal

Our Championship skipper Wes Morgan has now extended his stay at Leicester until the summer of 2017 after agreeing a new three year deal yesterday.

Having tasted fantastic success with us last season, skippering us to the title and promotion, and now working hard in training towards skippering the side in our first year back in the top flight in a decade, Leicester moved quickly given the speculation that surrounded our skipper in January, and enacted the 12 month option we had on his existing deal, but with the season ending the club opened discussions over a new deal and that has now been signed.

Speaking to lcfc.com as the ink started to dry on the new deal, Morgan said.

'I'm delighted to finally commit my future to this club. Winning promotion with this squad last season and lifting the Championship trophy were the proudest moments of my career and I can't wait to hopefully lead the team out on the opening day of the season. We've all worked so hard to win promotion and the whole squad is determined to make the most of it. There are some big challenges ahead in the next few years and I'm excited that I'm going to be part of it.'

The 30 year old centre half appeared in all bar one of our league fixtures last season, and alongside Liam Moore and Marcin Wasilewski, Morgan more than played his part in a defensive record that saw us concede only 43 goals all campaign - the third lowest figure in the league last season.

His displays were also recognised by the Football League as he was named in the PFA Championship Team of the Season for the third time.

Manager Nigel Pearson said.

'Wes has been every bit of the captain we hoped he would be when we signed him two and a half years ago. He's a leader on and off the pitch, sets a terrific example for young players and is an extremely positive influence on the squad. I'm absolutely delighted that his long term future remains with us.'

Since joining us from Nottingham Forest a few years back, he has now made 118 appearances for the club, and he'll be looking forward to adding Premier League appearances to that tally.
