Jamie Vardy is a soccer player playing for Leicester City FC.
Sheffield-born Vardy spent time at Sheffield Wednesday in his youth but was released as a 16-year-old. He moved on Stocksbridge, Halifax Town and Fleetwood Town, the latter where he was prolific.
In May 2012, Vardy joined Championship club Leicester City on a £1 million pound deal - a then non-League record. Vardy starred for Leicester as they won the 2013-14 Championship table and earned promotion to the Premier League.
He struggled in his first season in the top flight but was outstanding in Leicester City’s famous 2015-16 Premier League title campaign, when he scored 24 goals and won the Premier League Player of the Season.
Vardy has since established himself as an England international and Premier League star, winning the league’s Golden Boot in 2019-20 too.
