How Leicester City announced the news that Ricardo Pereira has signed a new deal until at least 2026.

Born in Lisbon, Ricardo started his senior career with Vitória de Guimarães, and made his Primeira Liga debut in a 3-1 win over Pacos de Ferreira in April 2012.

He signed for Porto in July 2013 and made his first UEFA Champions League appearance against Lille a year later, before joining Nice on loan in summer 2015.

While in France, where he spent two seasons, he established himself as one of the best full-backs in Ligue 1, playing 56 times for Les Aiglons.

His stock continued to rise in 2019/20, with goals against Tottenham Hotspur, Newcastle and West Ham United leading to victories on all three occasions, and although injury cut short that season, he returned to action in 2020/21.

Internationally, he has represented Portugal at various youth levels before making the step-up to the senior side and starring for his country at the 2018 FIFA World Cup.
