David Nugent expresses his desire to sign a new contract with Leicester City as his current deal will expire at the end of the season.

Leicester City's top scorer David Nugent has said that he wants to sign a new contract with the Foxes.

The 28-year-old, whose current deal with the Championship side will expire at the end of the season, wants to speak with the club about a fresh contract around Christmas.

"We haven't sat down and talked yet, but I hope to soon," Nugent told the Leicester Mercury.

"When Christmas comes, my agent and I will sit down and talk to the gaffer (Nigel Pearson) and Terry (Robinson, director of football) and try to do a deal.

"I really hope we can because I want to stay here. The lads are quality and the coaching staff are quality. I am really enjoying being at the club."

Nugent has eight league goals this season, two of which came at Ipswich Town this weekend, and is sixth in the scoring charts.
