While Jonny Evans has received a new contract from Leicester City, he and Jamie Vardy have been named in Alan Shearer’s team of 2020.

The Brendan Rodgers project is succeeding: Leicester City sit third place in the Premier League, as well as securing progression to the first Europa League knockout round. Not to mention the squad developing and improving steadily.

Finally, club staff and players moved into the amazing, world-class new training facility in Seagrave, Leicestershire. Therefore, Foxes fans should be thrilled with the evolution of the King Power side. Khun Vichai’s well thought out dream is seemingly being realised.

Leicester City star’s new deal, two named in team of 2020

After some clearly drawn-out negotiations, veteran centre-back and leader at the back for Leicester, Jonny Evans, has put pen to paper.

Thankfully for supporters and youthful defenders coming through the ranks who can learn from the Northern Ireland international, Evans will be on Filbert way for another two-and-a-half years until 2023.

Although the 32-year-old has made a few worse than average appearances recently, he seems to have found his usual consistent form now.

Meanwhile, Alan Shearer – an EPL, Amazon Prime and BBC pundit and a former England captain – named Leicester striker Jamie Vardy in his team of the year along with Evans. Golden Boot 2019/20 winner Vardy is alongside Tottenham Hotspur’s Harry Kane and Mohamed Salah of Liverpool in attack. While the centre-half partners the Reds’ Virgil Van Dijk.

As mostly everyone moves into the strictest Tier 4 conditions, Leicester City Football Club announced the temporary closure of their supporter shop, but online services are still functioning. There will also be a change in the English top-flight as spectators are no longer permitted into stadia. Hopefully fans will soon be allowed back into their beloved stadiums when division bosses will be able to make that decision via government go-ahead.
