Brendan Rodgers has penned a new deal until June 2025 with former Premier League champions Leicester City, having been recently linked with Arsenal

Brendan Rodgers has all but ended speculation linking him with Arsenal after signing a new contract with Leicester.

The Northern Irishman has penned a new deal until June 2025 with the former Premier League champions.

Appointed Leicester’s manager in February, Rodgers has won 17 of his 26 Premier League games and his side currently sit second in the table after equalling a 56-year-old club record of seven consecutive top-flight victories on Wednesday night.

Leicester’s impressive form has seen the former Liverpool boss linked with Arsenal after the Gunners opted to part company with Unai Emery last week.

And just last night, following Arsenal’s defeat to Brighton, Rodgers was made favourite by the bookies to take over at the Emirates, but the 46-year-old has now committed his future to the Foxes.

“When I made the decision to come to Leicester City, it was because I was excited about the direction the Club was taking and how I could apply my experience to the journey,” Rodgers told the club’s website after signing his new deal.
