The club captain has penned an extension to his existing deal and will now remain at the club until the end of the 2019/20 campaign.

He has played 19 times in the league in 2018-19 and scored the winning goal in their 2-1 win over Burnley on Saturday.

Morgan has scored two goals in 19 Premier League appearances for the Foxes this season, including a last-minute header which clinched his side a 2-1 weekend win at Burnley.

Morgan joined Leicester in January 2012 in a £1m deal from Nottingham Forest and his appearance against Burnley was the 700th club match of his career.
