Brendan Rodgers has signed a contract extension with Leicester City through the 24-25 season.

Rodgers had been linked to the Arsenal job.

Rodgers has Leicester in second place in the Premier League since joining from Celtic in February.

“When I made the decision to come to Leicester City, it was because I was excited about the direction the club was taking and how I could apply my experience to the journey,” Rodgers said after signing the new deal.

“I came here with a purpose to add something to that and to help the club build for the future … I’ve inherited an outstanding team of staff that are dedicated to progress and improvement and we have a group of players that are a joy to work with every day.”
