LEICESTER, England (AP) — Leicester winger Harvey Barnes signed a contract extension Thursday to keep him at his boyhood club until June 2025.
The 23-year-old England international had been one of Leicester’s best players in 2020-21, scoring 13 goals in all competitions before undergoing knee surgery that ruled him out of the European Championship.
“I’ve been here for so many years now, it feels like home,” Barnes said. ”For me, it was a no-brainer. Of course, I wanted to extend my stay here.”
He’s been with Leicester since the age of 9 and rose through the club’s youth academy.
