Leicester midfielder Andy King has committed his future to the club by agreeing a contract extension.

King has become a central figure at the Walkers Stadium since graduating from the club's academy four years ago and has been particularly impressive this season.

Manager Sven Goran Eriksson recently dismissed speculation linking the Wales international with a move elsewhere following reported interest from the Premier League.

The Foxes manager also expressed his hope that King would soon sign a new deal, which has now happened.

King only penned a long-term contract last year but he has now agreed to extend his stay until June 2015.

He is thrilled to have such faith shown in him and hopes to repay Leicester by helping them earn promotion from the Championship.

Big ambitions

"It has always been my ambition to play Premier League football and it is obvious that Leicester City are heading in that direction," said the 22-year-old.

"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, Leicester's current leading scorer with 14 goals this season, follows team-mates Paul Gallagher, Richie Wellens and Matt Oakley in extending his stay at the Walkers Stadium.
