Ben Chilwell, who made his England debut last month, has agreed a new long-term contract with Leicester City.

The 21-year-old, who has been with the Foxes for the last nine years, has pledged his future with the club until June 2024.

The full-back has become a first-team regular in the last 12 months under current boss Claude Puel.

Chilwell said: "Leicester has always felt like the right place for me. I've had fantastic support at every level since I arrived nine years ago and I've always felt opportunities would come if I continued to work hard. That's a great feeling to have as a young player.

"The club has really big, long-term plans and it's really exciting to know that I'm going to be part of that. We've got a great squad with quite a youthful core so there's a real opportunity for us to push on and achieve something together in the coming years."

Chilwell made his first-team debut at Hull City in the League Cup in October 2015 and has featured in 44 Premier League matches for the club.

He has only scored one goal for Leicester but is 18/1 to net an any time against Arsenal on Monday in a match the Foxes are 15/2 to draw 1-1.
