Berner signs contract extension

Leicester City defender Bruno Berner has signed a new contract that will extend his stay at the Walkers Stadium until the end of the 2011/12 season.

Berner, a cult hero for Foxes fans since his d├ębut two years ago, has ended speculation concerning a possible move away from the East Midlands by signing this contract extension after a string of impressive performances. The former Swiss international has re-gained his place in Sven Goran Eriksson's starting eleven since the injury to loanee Greg Cunningham and the Leicester boss is clearly impressed with the 32-year-old's work.

"He is a great example to young players," said the Swede, "I told him I want to keep him. In training he is so professional, works hard every day and never creates any problems.

"His recent form has been impressive and he has shown his strengths with some very accomplished performances."

Meanwhile, Berner's fellow full back Tom Kennedy has left the Foxes on a loan deal that will see him remain at Peterborough United until the end of the season.
