And both players were delighted to help Jonathan Morgan’s side in their effort to do so.

Life-long Foxes fan Plumptre joined the club last season from US side LA Galaxy and revealed she’s grateful to remain with her home-town club.

She beamed on Instagram: “So grateful to be spending another two years at this special club. Home is where the heart is.”

The defender previously played in the WSL with former top-tier side Notts County in 2014.

She then joined US college side USC Trojans in 2016 and then moved to Galaxy in 2019.

Plumptre returned to Leicester the following year, helping them win the Championship trophy.

And Devlin, who also joined the Foxes last season, said she was happy to sign her new deal.

She said: “Happy to sign a new contract with this amazing club.”

The 23-year-old was playing part-time football before Morgan came in a swooped her from Charlton Athletic.

She scored three goals for the Foxes last term and will be eager to increase her tally for the club next season.

And Morgan will be able to draw upon her knowledge of the WSL which Devlin played in for Arsenal in 2016 to 2017.

Devlin was also part of Casey Stoney’s Manchester United team in 2018 that won the Championship in their inaugural season.

Her current club Leicester achieved promotion to the big league in style when they picked up their Championship crown at the King Power Stadium in the last game of the season.

The Foxes already showed they’re capable of competing with the league’s big-shots following their 3-2 win against United in the FA Cup.

And the club’s managing duo Emile Heskey and Morgan reckon their team have the ability to cause problems for the WSL’s top sides throughout next term.
