On a day where Leicester City enjoyed a magnificent 3-1 win at the Etihad Stadium, the news got even better for the club, with star-striker Jamie Vardy  penning a new contract with the Premier League leaders which keeps him at the King Power Stadium until 2019.

The 29-year-old, who joined Leicester from Fleetwood Town for £1million back in 2012, has blossomed into one of the country’s most dangerous strikers, becoming the first-player ever to score in 11 consecutive Premier League fixtures.

Now, the fleet-footed forward has pledged his future to the club in a deal which will see his weekly wage jump from £45,000 to £80,000 a week. Vardy tweeted the good news after the win over Man City…
