Premier League: Jamie Vardy signs new Leicester deal

Jamie Vardy has signed a new four-year contract with Premier League side Leicester City.

Vardy was a key player in helping the Foxes win promotion to the top flight last season, scoring 16 times in the club's march to the Championship title.

The 27-year-old striker was named Players’ Player of the Year last campaign and has scored 21 goals in 70 appearances since joining the Foxes from Fleetwood Town in 2012.

"I'm over the moon. We all know that the club wants to keep improving and stay in the Premier League, and I definitely want to be a part of that," said Vardy.

"Everyone knows the way that I've come back into football [from non-league], and we managed to get promoted last season, but now it's all about making sure that we stay in the Premier League.

"Nigel Pearson brought me here and he wants the club to maintain their Premier League status. He was a big influence [on me signing a new deal] and now I've just got to repay him on the field."

Vardy is the latest player to commit to new terms since the club won promotion, joining Danny Drinkwater, Matty James, Liam Moore, Wes Morgan, David Nugent, Jeff Schlupp, Kasper Schmeichel, Gary Taylor-Fletcher and Marcin Wasilewski.
