Leicester defenders Evans pushes rivalry aside to congratulate Maguire

Jonny Evans believes Leicester City teammate and fellow centre-back Harry Maguire deserved his new contract.

The Manchester United target penned a long-term extension with Leicester after an impressive World Cup campaign.

"You could sort of tell that that might happen. You can tell he loves the club," Evans said.

"He's been playing very well for the club over the last year, he's gone on to play for England and has been fantastic.

"I think when things are going well in your career like that it's important to keep that stability in your game. He's done the right thing and already all the lads are texting him saying congratulations."
