  • Player profile

    Sheffield-born Vardy was brought to City in the summer of 2012 by manager Nigel Pearson as a non-league success story.

    Scoring goals for fun in the non-leagues, a reported fee of £1 million, a non-league record, was shelled out for the striker. It could potentially be worth up to £1.7 million in add-ons, with Vardy signing a three-year deal at the King Power Stadium from Fleetwood Town.

    He was on the youth books at Sheffield Wednesday but was released and then signed for local club Stocksbridge Park Steels at the age of 16. He caught the eye of numerous Football League clubs, including Crewe and Rotherham United, but he remained at Steels until FC Halifax Town secured his services in 2010.

    After just one season with Halifax Vardy signed for Fleetwood and his career really took off, scoring regularly and helping the team to an unlikely promotion in to the Football League. Town turned down a bid from neighbours Blackpool for Vardy's services but couldn't resist when City came calling.

    A determined, never-say-die character complements Vardy's eye for goal and City will be hoping their gamble pays off.
