Vardy vows to stay after firing stunner for Leicester

03 February 2016, 07:45

Leicester - Jamie Vardy pledged his future to Leicester after the best goal of his remarkable career inspired a 2-0 win over Liverpool that kept the shock Premier League leaders on course for the title.

Vardy produced an absolute belter to break the deadlock in the 60th minute at the King Power Stadium on Tuesday when the England striker lashed home from 30 yards out.

The 29-year-old struck again 11 minutes later to seal a win that puts Leicester three points clear of second placed Manchester City and a step closer to completing their incredible bid to win the English crown.

With 18 goals to his credit this term, Vardy will inevitably be in high demand from the league's big guns at the end of the season.

But Vardy, who was playing non-league football just a few years ago, is in talks over a new deal worth a reported 80,000 ($115,000) per week that would keep him at the club until at least 2019.

"It's nothing people don't know, I'd like to be here for a long time," Vardy told Sky Sports.

Asked where the opener against Liverpool ranked home his most memorable goals, Vardy said it was the best yet.

"I don't (think I've scored better). I had been looking all game and he (Simon Mignolet) was quite far off his line," he added.

"As soon as Riyad (Mahrez) had played it through it's bounced quite high and I've got no support so I just took my chance and luckily it's gone over the top of him."
