Marc Albrighton Extends Leicester City Stay
- Marc Albrighton signs contract extension to 2024
- The 31-year-old has made 253 appearances for the Foxes
- He first joined the Club from Aston Villa in the summer of 2014
- The winger has lifted the Premier League and FA Cup as a Leicester City player
The 31-year-old – who joined the Foxes in the summer of 2014 – played 42 times in all competitions during the 2020/21 campaign and helped City to beat Chelsea in the Emirates FA Cup final at Wembley in May.
The winger, who was integral to the 2015/16 Premier League title win, has established himself as one of the Leicester City’s most consistent performers in recent years, making a total of 253 appearances for the Club since his move from Aston Villa seven years ago.
A Fantastic Club, Says Albrighton
Marc Albrighton speaks to LCFC TV after signing a new contract at Leicester City to reflect on his time so far with the Foxes and to look to the future.
Speaking to LCFC TV after signing his new deal, he said: “I’m delighted. Obviously, it’s a Club that is progressing every single year. It’s a fantastic Club with the people here and the direction that they’re going – it’s great to be a part of.
“I have always been the type of player and person who wants to establish himself at a club and stay there. I’m settled here and I’m really enjoying it.”
A favourite among the Blue Army, Albrighton has been at the heart of some of the most memorable moments in the Club’s history - most notably the 2015/16 Premier League title win and more recently the Emirates FA Cup triumph.
His contributions at both ends of the pitch and incredible work-rate have made him an invaluable player for the Foxes.
He scored the Club’s first-ever UEFA Champions League goal away at Club Brugge and fired home the decisive strike against Sevilla to book a quarter-final spot later in the competition.
Since Brendan Rodgers took over as City manager in February 2019, Albrighton has featured on 75 occasions, as he continues to prove himself to be a key part of the team.
