England striker Jammie Vardy has extended his contract with Leicester City by another four years until 2022.

Vardy, 31, entered the King Power stadium from non-league side, Fleetwood Town, in 2012.

He has since featured 233 times for the club in all competitions scoring 88 goals that have seen him scale the heights to become the club’s 10th all-time top goal-scorer.

“The journey that I, the team and the Club have been on in the past few years has been incredible,” Vardy said after signing the new contract, adding that, “Going into the new season, it’s an exciting time for Leicester City and I’m delighted to be part of it.”

The striker scored 24 goals in Leicester’s miraculous 2015/16 title-winning season. He was part of the England squad that finished fourth in the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.

“Everybody knows how I feel about playing for this Football Club and it’s a great feeling to know that I can look forward to another four years as a Leicester City player.”

Leicester start their Premier League campaign on Friday night against Manchester United.
