Leicester City defender Chris Powell has hinted his football career may finish at the end of the season.

The 39-year-old former England defender signed a new deal with the Foxes until the end of the season this week.

Powell told BBC Radio Leicester: "I'm not saying that I will definitely not be playing but it's highly unlikely.

"Being part of a side that's top of League One and striving to get back in the Championship - I couldn't have asked for a better end to my career."

Powell added: "I can't see me playing for a club after Leicester City.

"I've kept myself fit and at my age I'm loving every minute of it."

The former England left-back said he may look at getting involved in coaching.

"I'm definitely going to stay in the game but in what capacity I don't know yet - it still might be playing - who knows," he said.

Powell began his career at Crystal Palace before having spells at Southend, Derby and Charlton.
