Vardy is delighted to have signed a new contract with Leicester and told their official website:To get the numbers that I did [last season], I’m delighted with it, but there’s still more to come.

There will be a day when that comes, but that’s not right now. We look forward to another season in the Premier League and seeing what we can do. One hundred per cent, it’s the best league in the world. That’s where you want to be playing your football.”
