Jamie Vardy is the Premier League’s top goalscorer so far this season with nine goals.

One to tell your grandchildren; Jamie Vardy has gone from rags to riches. From Fleetwood Town forward in 2012 to full England international in 2015; not many professional footballers can read aloud a better fairy tale story than Vardy’s journey from a non-league nobody to a Premier League predator. Having started his career at Stocksbridge Park Steels; who currently play their trade in the Northern Premier League, Vardy has become an in-form striker for both club and country. The 28-year-old hitman tops the Premier League’s goalscoring charts with nine goals in Leicester City’s opening nine fixtures, including a pivotal brace in the Foxes’ 2-2 draw at Southampton on Saturday, to almost double his tally for the whole of the 2014-15 campaign already (5). As well as his ruthless domestic form; Vardy has hit the dizzy heights at international level since making his England debut against the Republic of Ireland back in June, featuring in three of the Three Lions’ last four European Championship qualifiers.
