Leicester City’s captain, Wes Morgan will retire at the end of season, the club announced on Friday.
He is set to retire after nine hugely successful years at the Club and a career spanning over 750 professional games.
Morgan headed the Foxes to their shock title win in 2016 and helped them lift the FA Cup for the first time when he made a late substitute appearance in last week’s 1-0 final victory over Chelsea.
Morgan has made 324 appearances and scored 14 goals for Leicester in all competitions since joining from Nottingham Forest in 2012, and was capped 30 times by Jamaica.
Leicester City chairman, Aiyawatt Srivaddhanaprabha, paid an awesome tribute to the long-serving captain, who has struggled with a back problem this year.
Aiyawatt Srivaddhanaprabha said: “Wes has been one of Leicester City’s greatest servants, leading the team through the club’s most successful era and helping to set the standards that have pushed the club forward,”
“A big brother to everyone he has played with, a strong representative of the squad and a valuable source of counsel to managers and senior executives in the club, his contribution has been enormous.”
Leicester end their season at home to Tottenham on Sunday hoping to secure a top-four finish, which would mean qualification for next season’s Champions League.
