Former Leicester City player Steve Howey is pleased that Harvey Barnes has signed a new contract at the King Power Stadium.
Barnes has put pen-to-paper on a new four-year deal with the Foxes, which will keep him at the club until June 2025.
The 23-year-old has made 102 appearances for Leicester, scoring 21 goals and providing a further 15 assists.
And Howey admits that he was happy to see Barnes commit his future to Leicester, exclusive telling Football FanCast: “I thought last season, up until his injury, he was playing very, very well.
“So, I’m pleased that he’s managed to sign his contract, he’ll be happy, the club will be happy, and I think it’ll not be long before he’s back in the form, which he was showing before he got injured, but I think all parties are happy that he’s got a new long-term contract, his family will be a lot more settled and now he can just concentrate on his football.”
After adding the Community Shield to the FA Cup they lifted last season, Leicester have started the new season in indifferent form, beating Wolves 1-0 at home before being thrashed 4-1 at the hands of West Ham in east London.
