New Signing For Leicester City
Leicester City is delighted to confirm that talented midfielder Sammy Braybrooke has signed a new long-term contract with the Football Club.
The 18-year-old, who made his first team debut for the Foxes in an EFL Cup victory over Newport County in November, has committed his future to the Club until 2026.
He joined City’s Academy at the age of eight and has risen through the ranks to establish himself as a key player, both for the Under-18s and Development Squad.
His performances at Academy level have also earned him international recognition, with the Wigston-born youngster captaining England’s Under-18s and Under-19s age groups.
Upon signing his new deal, he said: “It’s something that everyone wants, to sign a new contract, extending my stay at the Club I’ve been at since I was eight years old.”
“I’m very happy to get it over the line and hopefully I can build on from this and show why I was offered this contract. It shows great faith in me and gives me a lot of confidence, showing that they want me to stay here as long as possible.”
The Club’s renowned Academy – who retained their Category One status last season – have a proud history of developing players for the first team, with the likes of Harvey Barnes, Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall and Luke Thomas all progressing through the pathway.
The trio, who are regular performers under first team manager Brendan Rodgers, have together amassed 229 Premier League games for the Foxes, with Barnes making his senior England debut in October 2020.
