Jamie Vardy signs new deal at Leicester

Premier League Golden Boot winner Jamie Vardy has signed a new three-year deal with Leicester City.

Leicester City have announced that Jamie Vardy has extended his contract with the club which will take him through until 2023 at the King Power Stadium.

The 33-year-old had just under two years left on his previous contract, but he has agreed fresh terms to extend his stay at the King Power Stadium by a further year.

The explosive Vardy won the Premier League Golden Boot for the first time in his career with 23 goals in 35 appearances for Brendan Rodgers’ side, who ended at fifth last season.

Leicester confirmed the deal just a few days after midfielder James Maddison ended speculation over his future by penning down a new four-year contract amid reports England left-back Ben Chilwell is set to leave for Chelsea.

The ex-England forward has been one of the most prolific strikers since joining Leicester from non-league side Fleetwood in 2012, and led Claudio Ranieri’s side to win the Premier League in the 2015-16 season.

The clinical forward also holds the record for consecutive games scored in the top flight, scoring in 11 successive games in 2015 and surpassing Ruud van Nistelrooy’s record in the process.

He reached another landmark in July, when he scored his 100th Premier League goal to join an exclusive club, becoming the 29th player to do so.He currently has 103 goals in the Premier League and has scored 129 goals in 309 appearances in all competitions for the Foxes, who qualified for the Europa League after finishing fifth in the standings.
