Brendan Rodgers has signed a new five-and-a-half-year contract at Leicester City, ending speculation over a move to Arsenal.

The former Liverpool and Celtic manager was on Arsenal's shortlist after sacking Unai Emery last week despite insisting he was "very happy" at Leicester, who sit second in the Premier League.

Rodgers' previous contract was due to expire in 2022, but his suggestion that deal contained a release clause had fuelled talk of a move away from the King Power Stadium.

He says talks over a new Leicester deal had been ongoing for weeks before Emery left Arsenal.

"When I made the decision to come to Leicester City, it was because I was excited about the direction the club was taking and how I could apply my experience to the journey," said Rodgers, who took over in February this year.

"I came here with a purpose to add something to that and to help the club build for the future."
