Leicester City forward Demarai Gray has confirmed that he is ready to sign a new deal with the Foxes.
Gray produced his best display in a Leicester City shirt to inspire the team to a 2-0 home victory over Everton in new manager Claude Puel’s first game in charge.
Speaking on his contractual situation, Gray revealed that the parties involved wanted the managerial uncertainty surrounding the club to be resolved before any talk of a new deal.
In his words, he said:
“We wanted to see who the new manager was, a bit of stability, but I’m happy playing football here.”
“It’s for my representative and the backroom staff to deal with. All I can do is what I’ve done [against Everton]. When they give me the phone call we’ll get it sorted.” he added.
The England Under-21 international joined the club from Birmingham City for £3.7m in January 2016 and Sunday’s game against Everton was only his 12th league start in addition to a whooping 39 substitute appearances.
Speaking further, Gray said:
“I’ve always said I’m ready to play and I’ve waited a long time.”
“Hopefully now this can be a start of a run of games for me.
“It’s what I need, to get some confidence and momentum myself and most importantly develop as a player.” he concluded.
