(Reuters) - Leicester City winger Demarai Gray has signed a new four-year contract to keep him at the English Premier League club until June 2021.

The 21-year-old joined Leicester from Birmingham City in January 2016 and went on to help the team lift the 2015/16 Premier League title.

“I’m very happy. Now I just want to kick on and keep doing what I’m doing,” Gray told the club website ( on Thursday.

“I want to be starting games and, for me to be doing that, I have to work hard in training.”

Gray, who has made more than 60 appearances for Leicester, scored his first league goal for the club in more than a year in new manager Claude Puel’s first game in charge, a 2-0 win over Everton last weekend.
