- Mendy signed from French side Nice in the summer of 2016

A short-term agreement was reached to allow the 28-year-old to continue to represent the Foxes in the resumption of the 2019/20 campaign, with his time at King Power Stadium now extended until at least 2023.

Leicester City Manager Brendan Rodgers told LCFC.com: “I’ve enjoyed working with Papy since I arrived at Leicester City and the more I’ve seen of him, the more impressed I’ve been, so I’m delighted he’s extended his deal with the Club as he has an important role to play.

“To have someone with his experience, quality and maturity is a big boost for us, especially with European football next season. He’s been first class for me and has played very well every time he’s featured, so I’m delighted that he’s committed to continuing to be part of what we’re trying to build at Leicester City.”

The Frenchman signed for Leicester City in the summer of 2016 from Ligue 1 side Nice, after three impressive seasons for Les Aigles, who he joined after starting his career with AS Monaco.

In total, Mendy has played 49 times for the Foxes in the Premier League, UEFA Champions League, FA Cup and League Cup – including eight appearances this campaign and two since the season restart.

Mendy’s debut came in the 2016 Community Shield against Manchester United at Wembley, and while injury limited his appearances during that season, he returned from a loan spell with former team Nice to play 32 times for the Foxes in 2018/19.

He will now stay with the team as they prepare for the 2020/21 season and another campaign of European football.
