If you look at the nine years since I’ve been here that’s all it’s ever done. It’s carried on progressing.’ The 34-year-old went on to famously help the club win the Premier League title in 2016 Now he's aiming to win the Foxes their first-ever FA Cup at Wembley on Saturday They are currently third and will seal a Champions League spot with four points from their final two matches, against Chelsea and Spurs.Vardy turns 35 in January but has no thoughts of calling it a day.

I’d want to be coming back again next year to try to win it again.’ RELATED ARTICLES Previous 1 Next N'Golo Kante and James Maddison are midfield shoo-ins for...
