Leicester City boss signs new deal

Sky Sports are reporting that Claudio Ranieri has signed a new long-term contract at Leicester City.

The Italian only joined the Foxes last summer, signing a three-year deal before leading them to one of the most surprising title charges in world football.

And after their first title in their 132 year history, Leicester have offered Ranieri a new contract, which will be completely finalised before they start their defence of their crown on Saturday away at Hull.

It’s been an important summer of contract talks for the champions, after Jamie Vardy snubbed a move to Arsenal to stay at the King Power Stadium with a new deal. And whilst they weren’t able to keep hold of N’Golo Kante, Ranieri has followed Vardy and a number of other first team players in signing improved deals.

Ranieri was a surprise appointment last summer, with many fans and pundits questioning the decision, before the former Chelsea boss lead the Foxes to ultimate glory.
