Ghana centre-back Daniel Amartey has expressed his delight after signing a new contract at Leicester City that will keep him at the club until 2022.


The 23-year-old's impressive performance in the season has been rewarded with a three-and-a-half-year contract extension despite being on the treatment table since October, after breaking his leg in the side's 1-1 draw with West Ham United.  

And he told the club: “I am very happy to sign this contract at Leicester City.

"I am a simple and easy guy. I work hard and I focus.

"By God’s grace, my recovery is getting better and I have to be strong when I come back.

"I have to be ready, for the club and for the manager.”
