Chelsea move would be unwise, Jamie Vardy must stick with Leicester City

So, Jamie Vardy has broken the record for goals scored in consecutive games - but does that make him one of the Premier League's all-time greats?

Well, probably not, but it does at least show he is the most in form English striker and, without a doubt, a raw talent.

It is inevitable that with such form comes speculation surrounding a big money move to one of England's giants, with Chelsea and Manchester United both interested and told to pay £30 million for his services.

The same once happened to Harry Kane, who last season was linked with a mind-boggling £50 million move to the Red Devils, though nothing materialised.

Now, this is where Vardy needs to see sense. There is no doubt he has ability and that if the price is right, Leicester City have a big decision to make - but what would happen to him should be make such a move?

Just take a look at players of a similar ilk. Wilfried Bony, Loic Remy and Andy Carroll, but to name a few, all hit a purple patches for Swansea, Newcastle and Liverpool respectively and were rewarded with big-money moves to bigger sides. However, not one of them has since pushed on and retained their previous form.

Far too often players choose money and success over playing time and suitability, epitomised by the above three, and after a while the 'big clubs' eventually lose patience and dip into the transfer market to sign bigger and better strikers.

So for Vardy, the message is simple: stay where you are, enjoy the limelight and continue scoring goals for a club that will back you through thick and thin.

If Roy Hodgson has any sense, he will pick his Euro 2016 squad based on form, not reputation. Vardy has been undeniably excellent, and therefore has every chance on establishing himself as an England international regardless of who he plays for.
