Patrick Kisnorbo has been rewarded with a contract extension by Leicester City.

The Australia international linked up with The Foxes 12 months ago from Hearts and impressed during his debut season in The Championship.

He was converted from a midfielder into a centre half and has now had his contract topped up by a further year.

Kisnorbo is now tied to The Walkers Stadium until 2009 and he is honoured to have been offered the new terms by Leicester.

"It's a big endorsement from the club to be handed a new deal less than 12 months after signing your old one and I'm very humbled by the gesture," Kisnorbo told the club's official website.

The 25-year-old had been linked with a summer exit from Leicester, with Wigan Athletic rumoured to have held an interest.

Those fears should now be allayed after Kisnorbo pledged his future to The Foxes, who will be aiming to bid for promotion this season.
