Danny Drinkwater says there is a “lot more to come” from Leicester after signing a new five-year deal at the King Power Stadium.

Former Manchester United midfielder Drinkwater has followed Riyad Mahrez, Jamie Vardy, Kasper Schmeichel, Wes Morgan and Andy King in committing his future to the Premier League champions.

The 26-year-old had been linked with a move to Tottenham earlier this summer but insists he never wanted to leave the Foxes.

“I’ve loved playing for this Club, it’s been perfect for me and my career and I want to be here for a long time to come. I couldn’t be happier,” he told the club’s official website.

“I’ve grown a lot as a player and a person in the last four years and Leicester City has been a massive part of that. I owe a lot to the staff here for helping me get to this point – they’ve been quality.

“And I love being part of this team. We’ve been through so much together and I’m sure there’s a lot more to come.”

And Leicester boss Claudio Ranieri paid tribute to Drinkwater: “Ever since I joined Leicester City, Danny has been one of our most consistent players. He’s a fantastic player and a fantastic man.

“He’s an important player for us and a very popular player in the dressing room. I want him to stay with us for a very long time.”
