Schlupp explains why he extended Leicester contract

Ghana international attacker Jeffrey Schlup has stated Leicester City is exactly the right place for him to improve as a player, after signing a new four-year contract with the Club.

The 22-year-old Hamburg-born versatile attacker inked a four-year extension deal with the Foxes following an outstanding first season in the Barclays Premier League.

Having started 30 of City’s 38 games in the league last season, 2014/15 was the first campaign in which Schlupp, 22, has properly established himself as a first team regular.

The Black Stars player, who has been at Leicester City since age 11, remains confident that he can continue to move forward if he keeps gathering such experience.

“I’m absolutely delighted to sign for a club that is seriously going places,” Jeff told lcfc.com


“We’ve seen how far the Club has progressed in the last few years and it looks like it’s just the beginning.

“I’ve been here a long time, I know a lot about the city and the Club and I’ve always felt settled in Leicester. It’s a great place to work every day, I know a lot of people here and I think that’s helped me to progress. It’s a really good environment for a young player to learn and improve your game.

“Having just played my first real full season, I want to make sure I come back in the right condition so that I can kick on, get more football and keep developing.

“I want to play as much as I can in the next four years so it’s all about settling down and getting games under my belt.”
