Name: Jamie Vardy
Rewind just three years back; Jamie Vardy was banging in goals for fun at non-league level. Nowadays; the 28-year-old has swapped his Conference comforts for the Premier League limelight and international stage.
Originally bought from Fleetwood Town for a reported fee of £1m back in May 2012; Vardy is now being tipped for a ‘big money’ move to one of England’s elite clubs during the January transfer window following an outstanding year for the Foxes.
The former Stocksbridge Park Steels striker played a vital role in helping ex-manager Nigel Pearson guide Leicester to safety towards the end of last season, netting four goals in his final ten appearances to help the newly promoted outfit complete the great escape after winning seven of their final nine fixtures.
However this campaign; the England international has carved his own name into English football folklore, becoming a record breaker as Vardy became the first-ever Premier League player to score in 11 consecutive games to top the goalscoring charts with a sensational 15 league goals so far this term.
