Jonny Evans keen to extend contract with Leicester City
The defender’s current deal expires at the end of the season.
Evans is preparing for Thursday’s Europa League opener with Zorya Luhansk and is open to penning fresh terms at the King Power Stadium.
He said: “There’s been nothing formal in terms of contract talks, possibly that’s something my agent and the club will do in the near future, but I have really enjoyed my time here, if that option becomes available I’m sure it’s one I would take.
“If we can come to an agreement I’m sure it won’t be a problem and it will be sorted soon.”
He said: “It’s very important (to start well), it’s a home game and we’re stepping into the unknown a little because they (Zorya) have played in the Europa League more and have a bit more experience.
“We know it will be a tough group to get out of but we’re confident, especially if we get off to a good start.
“Travelling around Europe with your team-mates and going to the different stadiums, you never get that back. They are great occasions, we have been looking forward to it and I’m sure we’ll relish it.”
