LONDON (AP):

The England striker Jamie Vardy signed a new deal with Leicester which will keep him at the club until 2022. The 31-year-old Vardy's previous contract had been set to expire in 2020.

"Everybody knows how I feel about playing for this football club and it's a great feeling to know that I can look forward to another four years," Vardy said.

Since joining Leicester from then semi-professional Fleetwood Town in 2012, Vardy has scored 88 goals in 233 appearances.

Vardy scored 24 goals as Leicester secured a shock Premier League title during the 2015-16 season and has established himself as a member of the England squad.
