Throughout his career with Leicester, Vardy has been a standout performer, playing crucial roles in their historic Premier League title win in the 2015/16 season, where he also claimed the Premier League Player of the Season award.

Additionally, he played a vital role in Leicester’s FA Cup triumph in the 2020/21 season and their Championship victories in 2013/14 and 2023/24.

Vardy’s impressive achievements include winning the Premier League Golden Boot in the 2019/20 season, further solidifying his status as one of Leicester City’s most iconic players.

With Jamie Vardy poised to extend his stay at the club, Leicester City fans can look forward to witnessing more memorable moments from the seasoned striker in the upcoming Premier League campaign.
