Jamie Vardy has signed a new 4 year contract with Leicester City, extending his contract at the King Power Stadium until the summer of 2022. He has scored 88 goals for the club in all competitions since joining them.
The England International joined the Foxes from Fleetwood Town in 2012. He has been a mainstay in the team since then and has established himself as one of the most lethal strikers in the Premier League.
The 31 year old played a key role in the club’s 2015-2016 Premier League title winning campaign. He won both the Premier League Player of the Season and the FWA Football of the Year awards in the same campaign.
The Striker featured regularly for the Premier League giants last season, scoring 23 goals in all competitions in 45 appearances.
Capped 26 times by England, he was a part of the national team that reached the last four of the World Cup in Russia earlier this year, featuring in the semi-final against Croatia.
“It’s a great feeling to know that I can look forward to another four years as a Leicester City player,” Vardy said in a club statement as quoted by Goal. “Everybody knows how I feel about playing for this football club.
“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.”
It will be huge boost for the English side that one of their prized asset has signed a new contract with them. They also managed to keep hold of Harry Maguire, who was heavily linked with a summer exit.
They have made 7 signings this summer after they lost Riyad Mahrez to Manchester City. Leicester start their Premier League campaign away to Manchester United at Old Trafford on August 10 before they host newly-promoted Wolves eight days later on August 18.
