Leicester City and England striker Jamie Vardy has signed a new 4-year contract with former Premier League Champions Leicester.
The 31-year-old who joined Leicester in 2012 from Fleetwood Town has scored 88 goals in 233 games since joining the club and was instrumental in the club winning their Premier League for the first time in their history.
The English striker is renewing his contract after the last one he signed in 2016 to make him the highest-paid player in the history of the club.
While speaking on his new deal, and why he has decided to remain at the club despite interest from other top clubs, he said:
“Everybody knows how I feel about playing for this club and it’s a great feeling to know that I can look forward to another four years as a Leicester City player.
“The journey that me, the team and the club have been on in the past few years has been incredible. Going into the new season, it’s an exciting time for Leicester City and I’m delighted to be part of it.”
Jamie Vardy will be looking to kick start the new season with a bang, as Leicester face Manchester United for the season opener on Friday night.
