Leicester City star Jeffrey Schlupp has committed his future to the club, signing a new contract until the summer of 2019.

The 22-year-old Ghana international was one of the stars of a campaign that saw the Foxes put together a dramatic late run of form to secure their Premier League safety.

His sparkling displays saw him linked with Arsenal, Manchester United and Aston Villa, but he has decided to stay at the King Power Stadium.

A statement on Leicester's official website said: "Jeffrey Schlupp has committed his future to Leicester City by signing a new contract.

"He enjoyed an outstanding debut season in the Premier League, which culminated in a double triumph at the club's end of season awards, where he won the Players' Player and Young Player of the Year titles."

Last week, sources told ESPN FC that Schlupp, a winger who can also play at left-back or up front, was in negotiations over a new deal.

He signed a three-year contract last summer, but the club wanted to reward him for his rapid progress with another deal.
