Vardy extends Leicester contract until 2024

Leicester striker Jamie Vardy has signed a new contract tying him to the club until the summer of 2024.

The 35-year-old'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.

Vardy, who turns 36 in January, scored 24 goals in the Premier League as Leicester won the title in the 2015-16 season, scoring in a record 11 consecutive matches.

He also contributed four goals as Leicester went on to win their first FA Cup in 2020-21.

Vardy told LCFC TV: 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. 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.
