Vardy announced he has extended his contract with Leicester City on social media.

Leicester City forward Jamie Vardy has extended his contract with the English club until 2025.

This announcement comes despite various transfer rumours suggesting that he might leave England.

In an official statement, the club said, “We are thrilled to announce that our iconic number 9, Jamie Vardy, has committed his future to Leicester City by signing a new contract.”

These comments were made by the club’s spokesperson, who emphasised Vardy’s importance to the team.

Speculation had circulated over the past months that Vardy could be eyeing a move to other European leagues, with some sources mentioning interest from Serie A clubs.

However, Vardy’s decision to renew his contract lays those rumours to rest, at least for now.

Fans will no doubt be ecstatic to see their talismanic striker stay put, as he has been a crucial part of Leicester’s successes in recent years.

The 36-year-old forward joined the Foxes in 2012 and played a pivotal role in their historic 2015-2016 Premier League title win.

Vardy’s extension is expected to bolster the team’s morale as they prepare for the upcoming season, aiming to secure another top-four finish.

The player himself has expressed his delight, saying, “Leicester City has always felt like home to me. I couldn’t imagine playing anywhere else.”

These remarks were shared by Vardy in an interview on the club’s official website.

The contract extension signifies the club’s clear intent to retain its key players and build upon its recent achievements.

With Vardy staying on, Leicester City’s prospects for the future look bright as they continue to be a formidable force in the Premier League.
