New deal for Nugent

first_img The 29-year-old, who has one senior England cap, notched 20 goals in the Sky Bet Championship for the Foxes last season to help the club claim the title. He becomes the latest key player from that promotion campaign to put pen to paper on a new Leicester contract this summer, following the likes of goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel, defender and captain Wes Morgan and midfielder Danny Drinkwater. Nugent told lcfc.com: “I’m delighted to have signed for two years and I’m really looking forward to testing myself with the rest of the squad in the best league in the world. “Last season was the best of my career in terms of goals and assists, but I wouldn’t have managed it without the lads around me so I’m really pleased the squad has been kept together. I think we’ve got a great chance of doing well in the Premier League.” Leicester manager Nigel Pearson said: “David’s contribution to the squad goes a lot further than the goals he scores or the assists he provides. “He’s a striker that works incredibly hard for the team and helps us to set a tempo that other teams found difficult to cope with last season. “He’s a hugely popular, infectious character in the dressing room and a really important part of this group, so I’m delighted that he’ll be staying with us in the Premier League.” Nugent has been Leicester’s leading scorer in all three seasons since he joined them in 2011 following a four-year spell with Portsmouth, accruing a total of 54 goals in 148 appearances for the Foxes. He has Premier League experience from his time with Portsmouth and Burnley, who he played for on loan from Pompey. Leicester striker David Nugent has signed a new two-year deal at the King Power Stadium, the Barclays Premier League outfit have announced.center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Arsenal taking cautious approach with Alexis Sanchez injury

first_img In his absence, Arsenal have opened up a two-point lead at the top of the Premier League and open the defence of their FA Cup trophy against strugglers Sunderland. Wenger is not ready to rush Sanchez back into his side with crucial league fixtures to come and a Champions League tie against the Chile international’s former club Barcelona on the horizon. “The bad news of the week is that Alexis is not quite ready,” the Gunners boss told arsenal.com. “It is a precaution because of his hamstring, and it takes a few more days. He’s not bad but he’s not ready. “The thinking is to give absolutely everything to qualify. We are the holders of the cup and I know as well by experience that it is very important that you get in the competition and that you have a successful third round. It’s a tricky one, always, the third round.” There is better news on Mikel Arteta’s recovery from a calf injury while Wenger also offered an update on Tomas Rosicky, Santi Cazorla and Francis Coquelin – all of whom are sidelined with knee issues. “Tomas Rosicky is not far, he’s back in full training next week, so should be available soon. Mikel is available,” he added. “Nothing has changed (from the original timescale) with Santi. It could be a bit shorter with him because he’s often quicker (at recovering) than you expect him to be. Cazorla and Coquelin are doing well.” The 27-year-old missed the entire festive fixture list having suffered a hamstring injury in the 1-1 draw at Norwich in November. Sanchez was expected to make his comeback for the win over title rivals Manchester City before Christmas but suffered a setback in his recovery. Arsene Wenger has confirmed Alexis Sanchez will not be risked in Arsenal’s FA Cup third round clash with Sunderland on Saturday.center_img Press Associationlast_img read more
