Jamie Vardy Takes Final Decision Concerning His Future at Leicester City
The 35-year-old joined the Premier League club from Fleetwood Town in the summer of 2012. He has been a key part of everything that Leicester City had achieved during his time at the club, he also expressed his delight as my concerns about the extension of his contract.
I am obviously over the moon. Once I heard it was something the Club was looking at, there was only one thing that was going to happen, and I was going to sign it. The decision was easy. I’ve been here long enough now that I feel like part of the furniture. I think you can see with the way we’re trying to play, the way the Club’s wanting to go, that it’s going to be onwards and upwards. To carry on being involved with that, I was over the moon. Now it’s all about this season and finishing as high as we can. My legs are still feeling great so I’ll carry that on helping the Club as much as I can, whether that’s scoring or assisting, that’s what I’m here to do.
He was a key figure in the Club’s promotion to the top flight in 2013/14, scoring 16 goals during that period. He also played a vital role in the historic escape from relegation upon City’s return to the Premier League in 2014/15.
Vardy scored 24 times in all competitions, including breaking the record of scoring 11 consecutive Premier League games, breaking Ruud van Nistelrooy’s record of 10 with a brilliant finish against Manchester United at King Power Stadium in November 2015.
