Ryan Bertrand signed two years Leicester City contract

Ryan Bertrand has officially signed Leicester City after ending his seven years stay at Southampton. Leicester has confirmed the signing of Bertrand for two years. “Experienced left-back Ryan Bertrand has signed for Leicester City Football Club on a two-year deal, keeping him at King Power Stadium until at least 2023,” the club wrote on their official website.

The England international has been a free agent since recently leaving Southampton, bringing his seven-year stay on the south coast to an end. At Southampton, Bertrand has appeared in 240 games across all competitions, helping them to their first piece of silverware this century before succumbing late to Manchester United in the 2017 EFL Cup final.

The 31-year-old has won the Champions League with his former club Chelsea back in 2012. He joined the Chelsea Academy at age 15, and featured 57 times for the Blues at senior level.

The 5th Premier League club Leicester confirmed Bertrand’s arrival at the King Power Stadium, revealing the left-back has signed a deal until 2023. “The 31-year-old joins the Foxes on a free transfer after seven seasons with Southampton, where he made 240 appearances in all competitions,” read the club’s statement.

“An England international with 19 caps, Bertrand made his top-flight debut as a Chelsea player, where he would help the team lift the UEFA Champions League, UEFA Europa League and Emirates FA Cup.”

Bertrand said: “Joining Leicester really complimented my inner ambitions and what I still want to achieve. I’m really happy. Leicester has built something amazing over the years, especially since Brendan Rodgers has come in. It’s fantastic to be a part of this fantastic club and I’m going to give my all to try to do the fans proud.”
