Fuchs confirms Leicester departure in 2019

Christian Fuchs has admitted that he will leave Leicester City when his contract expires at the end of next season.

The left back, who arrived from Schalke in 2015, was a part of the Leicester squad that won the Premier League during the 2015-2016 season.

He is hoping to clinch a move to the MLS when his contract is up, since his family is based in New York City.

Fuchs said to Sky Sports: "I promised my wife I would be coming home. I also want to see my children growing up, it's good we have Facetime because letters wouldn't work.

"It was already a big decision extending my contract one more year but it was a good thing for the family. I've enjoyed my time in Leicester, I've had the biggest success here and I love the club.

"It's never going to be the case I'm completely done; I love the club, the city and appreciate the people. Maybe I want to build a bit of my own legacy here."
