Leicester City are in talks with Jonny Evans over a new contract, which would keep him at the King Power Stadium beyond this season, according to Sky Sports.

The 32-year-old joined the Foxes from West Bromwich Albion during the summer of 2018 after the Baggies were relegated from the Premier League. He has gone on to become a key part of Brendan Rodgers first-team.

The Northern Irishman is set to become a free agent at the end of this season. But, the Foxes are keen to keep hold of the defender, as he is still good enough to play for a lot of sides in the Premier League.

The report did add that Evans is happy with life in the East Midlands and that he is keen to sign a new contract with the club. He played all 38 Premier League games for Leicester last season as they narrowly missed out on Champions League qualification on the final day of the season after defeat to Manchester United. 

Due to his vast experience, Evans is also a valuable player off the field and can provide valuable leadership to younger players.
