Jamie Vardy

Jamie Vardy is an English forward who plays for Leicester City. Born in Sheffield on January 11, 1987, he  played for Sheffield Wednesday before being released at 16. Vardy then embarked on a remarkable climb through the English football pyramid which began at Stockbridge Park Steels. His next stop was FC Halifax Town where, after signing in a £15,000 deal, Vardy scored 25 times in 37 appearances to win the Northern Premier League Premier Division and the club's Player of the Season award.

After little over a year at Halifax, Vardy joined Conference Premier side Fleetwood Town, hitting 31 league goals in the 2011/12 season to secure the title and a £1million move to Leicester City in May 2012 – a record for a player leaving the Conference. After winning promotion to the English Premier League with Leicester in 2014, Vardy was part of the Foxes team that won the Premier League title in 2015/16 and was named Premier League Player of the Season. His meteoric rise continued with an England debut against the Republic of Ireland in 2015 and Vardy went on to win 26 caps, scoring seven times, before stepping aside from international duty following the 2018 FIFA World Cup.
