CLUB CAREER

ABOUT

Born in Sheffield, Vardy started his career with the Stocksbridge Park Steels youth system at the age of 16, after being released by Sheffield Wednesday. Playing his way up and into the first team at the non-league club. Crewe turned him down again after a week trial and a potential move to Rotherham never happened.

Eventually Vardy got a chance to move up the league ladder system and joined Halifax Town in 2010 for a fee of 15 000. After just a year at Halifax, finishing the season as the player of the year and top goalscorer he joined Fleetwood for an undisclosed fee.

His time at Fleetwood was also short lived after a great season, promotion to League 2 and playing to his strength, Leicester made Vardy the most expensive signing ever from a non-league club, paying 1 million up front, which later with add ons could rise to 1,7 million.

His start at Leicester was a bit problematic, being in the team for the first games of the season, and scoring his first league goal away to Blackburn in September. He was eventually dropped from the match squad and at some time it's said he had thoughts of quitting the game all together.

But since the next season, scoring 16 league goals and being an integral part of a team that won The Championship and got promoted, Vardy never looked back. His real breakthrough as a player came in the 5-3 home win v. Manchester United in the first season back in the top flight.

He made his England debut in May 2015. A goalless draw v. Ireland. Since then he has been a regular in the England set up for Roy Hodgson, Sam Allardyce and now with Gareth Southgate. Vardy played in the 2016 Euro's and to date he has played 19 times for England.

Vardy is a key player at the club, and was one of the reasons why Leicester City could win the Premier League in 2015-16, scoring 24 goals in 36 games.
