Leicester City have confirmed this evening that Paul Gallagher has signed a new contract with the club, the 24 year old who joined the Foxes in 2009 from Premier League side Blackburn Rovers, has decided to take a new contract offer up. The Scotsman’s new contract is now valid until the year 2015, and with Leicester City’s ambitions of Premier League football in the next season or two, Sven Goran Eriksson has now listed Gallagher as a key long term player.
Andy King and Richie Wellens have also been offered new contracts by the club; however it is Paul Gallagher who has decided to sign on the dotted line first. The winger took time to settle in at the Walkers Stadium, but ever since Eriksson took charge of the side, Gallagher has been one of Leicester City’s best performers. An excellent display against Scunthorpe at the weekend just showed what a talent Gallagher is, with the manager saying himself “He is not far from Beckham in terms of delivery of set pieces.”
Over the past couple of days Leicester City fans have been told, about another possible “big name” loan signing coming in for the rest of the season. Today the Daily Mail suggested that the Foxes could well be close to agreeing a loan deal for Fulham striker Diomansy Kamara; however many Foxes fans on a number of forums have already stated that he isn’t the big name they were hoping for. Players such as Shaun Wright-Phillips, Michael Owen and Daniel Pacheco have been mentioned but nothing has materialized yet.
