Leicester City midfielder Andy King has signed a new four-year contract.

The 26-year-old Wales international's current deal was set to run out at the end of the 2015 season, but he has agreed terms until the summer of 2018.

Academy graduate King has played in the top three divisions with City, amassing 283 career appearances for the club.

"I've only ever played for Leicester and it's looking like they're the only team I'll play for. I would love it if that is the case," King said.

"I'm absolutely buzzing. To have come so far and to be playing in the Premier League now is a dream come true."

King has started four Premier League games this season, having played 34 games last term as the club won the Championship title to secure promotion.
