Leicester City left back Christian Fuchs has signed a new contract with the Foxes that will keep the Austrian international at the club until 2019.
The 30-year-old Neunkirchen native joined the club on a free transfer last summer on a three-year deal after being let go by Bundesliga side Schalke 04. He’s now extended his contract by a year, keeping him at the King Power Stadium until the end of the 2018/19 campaign. He made 32 Premier League appearances last season as Leicester defied all odds to win the league title.
“We had a great last season and we’ve also done well so far this season in the Champions League,” Fuchs said.
“I’m happy here and I’ve had the best time of my career so far here. My name is the Austrian Fox and now I’m staying with the English Foxes.
“Nobody expected what we achieved so far and I think there’s still a lot to come. We built a good foundation and I think we can aim for more.
“It’s a lot of fun being here and it’s amazing with the fans. Them and the club itself just makes me feel so happy to be here.”
The Foxes has struggled in the Premier League this season, and heads into Matchday 9 in 13th place. But in Europe they have enjoyed a great start to their Champions League adventure, picking up three straight wins to top their group.
Leicester, who is coming off a 1-0 win over FC Copenhagen on Tuesday takes on Crystal Palace at home on Saturday.
