(Reuters) - Defender Jonny Evans said on Wednesday he is keen to extend his stay at Premier League Leicester City, with his contract set to expire at the end of the season.
Evans, 32, joined the Foxes on a three-year deal from West Bromwich Albion in 2018 for a reported 3.5 million pounds.
The Northern Ireland international has since played 77 games for Leicester, scoring three goals, and helped the club to fifth in the Premier League last season.
"There's been nothing formal in terms of contract talks," Evans said ahead of Thursday's Europa League opener against Ukrainian side Zorya Luhansk.
