But he has put pen to paper on an extension and said: "The journey that I’ve been on with this Football Club is hard to describe, and although we’ve accomplished so much together already, I know that I’ve got so much more to achieve with this team, so it’s a special feeling to be able to commit my future to Leicester City once again."

Vardy joined Leicester for £1million from Fleetwood Town in 2012.

Since his arrival, the 26-cap England international has chipped in with 123 goals.

And he showed no signs of slowing down last season as he scooped the 2019/20 Premier League Golden Boot.

Vardy found the net 23 times as Leicester finished just outside ofthe top four.

After winning the award, the 33-year-old admitted he does not feel his age.

He said: "I'm obviously delighted.

"And like you say it's all about the team, I wouldn't be in the position I am with the goals if it wasn't for them.

"Lucky I was able to put quite a few of them away this season.

"Fortunately I don't feel my age, my legs and everything are still fine and touch wood I'm not picking up any injuries."
