London, Aug 10 (IANS) English Premier League champions Leicester City has signed a new four-year contract with 65-year-old Italian coach Claudio Ranieri, the football club announced on its website on Wednesday.

“From the moment I talked to the owners about their vision for Leicester City, I knew it was something I wanted to be part of for a long time. The energy that exists at this Club — from the owners and the staff, to the players and supporters — is something very special. I am very happy and proud that I will be part of it for years to come,” Ranieri said in a club statement.
