Wesley Fofana has signed a new contract with Leicester City to keep him at the Premier League club until 2027.

Fofana joined The Foxes from Saint-Etienne in October 2020 and was impressed at the King Power Stadium in his first campaign in England, being named the club’s Young Player of the Season as Leicester won the FA Cup and narrowly missed out on Champions League qualification.

The Frenchman was being eyed by several clubs this season, but an injury changed everything for him.

However, the France Under-21 international has not played since suffering a broken leg and damaged ankle ligaments in a pre-season friendly against Villarreal last August.

This has not stopped the club from committing to Fofana’s future, and the centre-back signed a new contract on Monday.

Speaking to Leicester’s official website, Fofana said:

“I’m satisfied to sign a new contract. It shows the club has confidence in me, offering me a contract for 2027.

“I’m pleased to be here. It’s my club. I love the fans, so I’m optimistic and looking forward to being back playing.

“I love everything about the club, the city, and the fans. It’s a family, which is what I love the most. Everyone is close and gets on well.

“We also have a great team and are continuing to progress, with a desire to win more trophies. That’s why I have committed my future to the club until 2027. I want to achieve more with the club. There is a lot of talent here and still a lot more we can do together.”

Brendan Rodgers recently confirmed that Fofana is back in training but insisted he would not rush the 21-year-old back after a severe injury.

Fofana follows fellow Foxes defenders Ricardo Pereira and James Justin in signing a new contract at the club, with both recently penning deals until 2026.
