King commits to Foxes' cause

King: The Foxes skipper has signed for four more years
Andy King has shown his commitment to Leicester City by signing an extension to his existing three-year contract that will see him stay at the Walkers Stadium until 2015.

The Welsh international midfielder has impressed many since his emergence into the Foxes' starting eleven three seasons ago and he is widely tipped to take the club's Player of the Year award next month following a fans' vote.

Speaking to LCFC.com, King said that he was looking forward to Premier League football, but would like to be  part of a promoted Leicester side.

"It has always been my ambition to play Premier League football and it is obvious that Leicester City are heading in that direction. I am delighted that I will have the chance to help achieve that ambition. The owners and the manager have big ambitions for the Club, so knowing they want me to be here in the long term is a great feeling, especially as I only signed a new deal last year."

King has made an impressive 160 appearances for Leicester since graduating from the club's academy in 2007, going on to score a credible 38 goals - 14 of which see him as City's top scorer this term.
