Leicester City defender Jonny Evans has signed a two-and-a-half-year extension to his contract that will keep him at the Premier League club until the end of the 2022-23 season.

The 32-year-old former Manchester United center-back joined Leicester from West Brom in June 2018 and has made 89 appearances in all competitions.

Evans has played 74 Premier League games for Leicester and has been on the winning side 34 times with 15 draws and 25 losses.

Leicester has a slightly better winning percentage in the Premier League with Evans in the squad (45.9 percent) than without him (44.4 percent).

The Foxes also have a higher average points per total game (1.6) when Evans has been on the team than when he hasn’t (1.4).

“I have loved being here from the first day I entered. There is a great atmosphere in the place and it is a club with a lot of ambition, “Evans told the Leicester website.

“The players are ambitious and the signings they’ve made over the years, they’ve signed young, hungry players and it’s been great for me to join in and be a part of it.”

Brendan Rodgers’ team is currently third in the Premier League, four points behind leaders Liverpool, and plays Newcastle United on Sunday.
