Howard celebrates his winner against Leeds at Elland Road

Leicester City striker Steve Howard has signed a new deal which keeps him at the club until June 2012.

The towering 34-year-old forward, who scored the winner in Tuesday's 2-1 win at Leeds, joined in January 2008.

He helped City win the League One title the following season and made 36 league appearances as the club reached the play-off semi-finals last term.

Delighted Foxes executive director Aiyawatt Raksriaksorn said: "We hope he can continue to display his good form."

Howard, who signed for £1.5m from Derby County after an initial loan spell, has scored 29 goals in 101 starts for the club.


Raksriaksorn added: "Steve is a very determined player and has the character we are looking for as we strive to progress."

Howard began his Football League career with Hartlepool and also had spells with Northampton and Luton before moving to Derby where he won promotion to the Premier League.
