Vardy to pen new contract at King Power Stadium

Jamie Vardy will next week agree terms on a new contract with Leicester City, in a deal likely to keep the former England international with the Foxes well beyond his 37th birthday. Vardy has been a club legend since his arrival in 2012, helping the club to a Premier League title.

The 35-year-old has played 334 times for Leicester City, scoring 153 goals. Despite his advancing years, Vardy shows no sign of slowing down and last season scored 15 Premier League goals in 25 games. The player also helped the club win the FA Cup last season, as they continued their most successful decade in the club's history.

Vardy's new deal is likely to be worth £170,000 a week, and will tie the player down to a contract for his final leagues as a professional.

This weekend Vardy will be a part of Leicester City's side traveling to the Emirates Stadium to take on Arsenal, a team against which he has scored 11 goals during his time with the Foxes. Arsenal also have previously made a bid to sign Vardy that was unsuccessful.
