Leicester City defender Danny Simpson insists the players are hoping to see boss Craig Shakespeare extend his contract in the summer.

Shakespeare was handed the reigns in March until the end of the season and he has enjoyed his spell in management.
The former Foxes assistant replaced Claudio Ranieri after a dismal first half of the season, guiding the club into the quarter-finals of the Champions League.
Leicester also won six straight games under Shakespeare and the club are now 12th in the Premier League table.
With his contract up in June, Simpson has urged the club's owners to tie him down to a new deal.
He told talkSPORT: "Craig is Leicester. He has been there for years, all the lads love him, and he has been top class since he took over.
"It is only what we expected when he did take over. It is a shame for him we couldn’t get over that next step (in the Champions League) and get into the semi-finals.
"But there will be no complaints from the players or anyone if he does get the job. Leicester have got their identity back and people back supporting us.
"We have got to finish the season strong and see what happens."
