Vardy pens new Leicester deal

Commits to club until 2019

Leicester striker Jamie Vardy has signed a new deal which will keep him at the King Power Stadium until 2019.

Vardy has scored 18 times in the Barclays Premier League this season and has been a key figure in helping Leicester to the top of the table.

There had been plenty of speculation over his future, with a number of Premier League clubs linked with his signature, but he has handed Foxes fans another huge boost by committing himself to the club for another three years at least.

"I'm absolutely delighted to be fighting to achieve something special with this club, as part of this squad. I've never known a spirit like it - from the owners, to the manager and his staff, the players and the fans. I want to be part of it for a long time," he said.

"Leicester City have shown nothing but total faith in me since the day I arrived here three-and-a-half years ago and it's impossible to measure how much that belief has helped me to improve.

"I'll forever be grateful for the investment the club has made in me and I'll spend every day working to repay it."
