Jamie Vardy’s current deal was set to expire next summer but he has now extended his spell with the Foxes, which began when he joined from then non-League Fleetwood Town in 2012.

Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy has signed a one-year contract extension that will keep him with the Foxes until June 2024, the Premier League club said on Saturday.

Vardy had been linked with a possible move to Manchester United.

The 35-year-old, who joined from non-league side Fleetwood Town in 2012, is third on Leicester's all-time goalscorer list with 164 strikes from 387 games in all competitions.

"I'm 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," Vardy told the club website.

"The decision was easy. I've been here long enough now that I feel like part of the furniture."

Vardy, who scored 15 goals across competitions last season, was instrumental in guiding Leicester to the 2015-16 league title and also won the FA Cup in 2020-21.

Leicester, winless in its opening two league games this campaign, hosts Southampton later on Saturday.
