Vardy Signs New Leicester City Deal
Leicester City have announced that striker Jamie Vardy has signed a new deal with the club that will take him through until 2023 with the Foxes.
The England international forward finished the 2019-20 season with 23 Premier League goals, giving him the competition’s Golden Boot.
With a previous deal that was due to expire in 2022, Leicester have moved to keep the 33-year-old on their books for at least an additional year.
Vardy has been one of the iconic figures of Leicester’s rise to prominence in the Premier League, which peaked in 2016 as they won the title under the guidance of Claudio Ranieri.
He had joined the club from non-league Fleetwood Town in 2012 and fired the Foxes into the quarter-finals of the Champions League in 2017.
In addition, he holds the record for consecutive games scored in the Premier League, striking in 11 successive fixtures in 2015.
