Key foursome to pen new deals

Key: Wellens, Gallagher and King celebrate with Lloyd Dyer
Leicester City's key men are set to sign new deals having been offered extended terms by Sven Goran Eriksson in the wake of Saturday's emphatic win over Scunthorpe United.

Paul Gallagher is closest to agreeing a new contract at the Walkers Stadium, whilst midfielder Richie Wellens is also tipped to be agreeing to new terms in the coming days. 

Andy King, meanwhile, looks set to sign a deal that would see the terms of his current contract enhanced, with Eriksson describing the young Welsh international as a key player for the Foxes future.

"They haven't signed yet but I hope they will," noted the Swede on BBC Radio Leicester,  "I think we should do everything to try to keep them."

In the mean time, youth team prospect Jeffrey Schlupp has secured a new professional contract at the club that will see him remain in the East Midlands until June 2013. The German under-19 international has joined Brentford on a month-long loan as he looks to gain some first-team experience in the Football League.
