Vardy wants to leave Leicester

Jamie Vardy has admitted that he fancies a move away from Leicester City at some point in his career.

The 30-year-old has been linked with moves to Arsenal, Chelsea and Everton over the past two summer’s following his goalscoring heroics in the 2015/16 season. Despite choosing to stay with Leicester for now, he has admitted he would like a new challenge in the future. When asked where he would like to move to, he jokingly responded:

“Where the food is nicest”

He continued:

“Will Leicester be the last team I play for? I’m only 21 at heart. I’ve still got 14 years left! Who knows what can happen. I’ve spoken about it with my agent before.

“A move abroad, who knows? That would be something I’d probably like to experience. We’ll have to wait and see what happens.

“It could be anything really . . . just so I can get a different culture, a different experience, as I’ve only ever been in England.”

The England striker has praised the club’s owners who have ensured that the club have retained all but two of their Premier League title winning squad, with only N’Golo Kante and Danny Drinkwater leaving the club, both having joined Chelsea.

“To have only lost two players from that squad shows you what the club is about and what the owners are like. They want to keep everything together and want us to keep progressing.

“To only lose two of the players that won the league, I don’t think you can complain about that.”

Leicester also successfully managed to keep hold of want away winger Riyad Mahrez this summer, despite deadline day rumours of an imminent transfer.
