Leicester City winger Harvey Barnes has signed a new contract that will keep him at the club until 2025. The youngster had a contract until 2024 but his performances lately have impressed the club. He has earned an improved offer along with a one-year extension. The youngster enjoyed a successful period where he scored 13 goals in all competitions. He has established himself as a regular starter for Brendan Rodgers on the teamsheet. His performances earned him a call-up and a first English cap before suffering a season-ending knee injury. The injury ruled him out of a potential spot in England’s Euro 2020 squad.
“I’ve been here for so many years now, it feels like home. For me, it was a no-brainer. Of course, I wanted to extend my stay here.” Leicester City winger Harvey Barnes said. “It’s been something that’s been going on in the background and to sign now is great. It’s right at the start of a new season as well, which I know everyone is excited about.”
Barnes made his Leicester debut midway through the 2016-17 campaign but spent the majority of the next few years on loan at MK Dons, Barnsley, and then West Brom. It was at The Hawthorns where his goalscoring capabilities come to the fore and it convinced the Leicester hierarchy to give the wide-man a five-year deal in the summer of 2019. He has already made 100 appearances for the club and is hoping to make many more in the years to come.
