Leicester City has capped an impressive transfer transfer day by linking star forward Jamie Vardy with a new four-year contract to make him the highest-paid player in the club's history.
The new agreement will keep Vardy at King Power Stadium after his 35th birthday and he will take his time with the club for ten seasons.
It is likely to be the last long-term contract that the England international will sign and act as a sign of his continued and unwavering commitment to the Foxes.

Vardy said on the club's official website: "Everyone knows what I feel about playing in this football club and it's a great feeling to know that I can wait another four years as a Leicester City player.
"The journey that I, the team and the club have made in recent years has been incredible, as we enter the new season, it is an exciting time for Leicester City and I am delighted to be a part of it."
Vardy is the last member of the key trio that inspired his Premier League triumph in 2015-16, with N & # 39; Golo Kante a long time ago for Chelsea and Riyad Mahrez joined Manchester City earlier this summer. He rejected the possibility of joining Arsenal immediately after his victory for the title.
The forward's new agreement ties him beyond his 35th birthday and will probably be his last
Last season he saw a revival of his best form at the end of the campaign with 20 goals in 37 appearances, beating players like Romelu Lukaku and Roberto Firmino.
The news of the agreement comes after a constructive summer transfer business in which Claude Puel brought six players and clung to the goal of Manchester United, Harry Maguire.
The Foxes, who still benefit from the financial gain of winning the Premier League three seasons ago, spent more than £ 120 million on the entire sale and capped their businesses with two more arrivals in the last hours.
They awarded two high-level power stations in Filip Benkovic and Caglar Soyuncu. The first came from Dinamo Zagreb for £ 13.5m, while the latter is still waiting for international authorization for a £ 17m deal from Freiburg.
