Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy has agreed a new deal that will keep him at the club until 2023.

"It's a special feeling to be able to commit my future to Leicester City once again," Vardy said.

"I love playing my football in front of our fans at King Power Stadium and I'm delighted to continue this journey at such an exciting time for the club.

"We've a fantastic team that I believe is capable of getting even better and I can't wait to see what we can achieve together in the next few years."

The new deal will extend Vardy's stay at the Foxes to 11 years after he joined the club in 2012.

Vardy played a key role in helping Leicester win the Premier League title in 2015-16, scoring 24 goals that season.

In June he reached a significant career milestone by scoring his 100th Premier League goal, becoming the 29th person to achieve that feat.

The former FC Halifax and Fleetwood striker has scored 130 goals in 310 appearances in his eight years at Leicester.
