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 (www.lcfc.com) 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.
