This season’s biggest surprise has undoubtedly been the story of Leicester City. After starting 2015 bottom of the Premier League and four points from safety, it appeared that only a miracle could save the Foxes from relegation.
Now, one year on, they sit at the peak of England's top-flight - and one man who has played a massive role in this revolution is Jamie Vardy.
Prior to this campaign, the England international was a massive outsider to win the Premier League Golden Boot at 500/1.

With only 14 games to go, though, he is the league’s top scorer with 18 goals - more than any Leicester player has ever managed in a single Premier League season.
The Chelsea and Real Madrid target's incredible exploits also saw him break Ruud van Nistelrooy's record by scoring in 11 consecutive league matches, the last ironically coming against the Dutchman's former club, Manchester United.
Vardy's spectacular - yet unprecedented - form has quite rightly led to Leicester offering the Englishman a new contract at the club, but he should think hard before choosing whether to sign it or not.
At the age of 29, this could be Vardy’s last chance to sign for one of Europe’s biggest clubs before they consider him past his sell-by date.
The striker was linked with a move to Premier League champions Chelsea and Manchester City during the January transfer window, but with Leicester flying high in the Premier League, a move was never likely to materialise.
When the summer comes around and such elite sides inevitably come back in for the former Fleetwood man, though, he may feel the time is right to seek pastures new.
It's unlikely Leicester will repeat such incredible form next season, so a move may be Vardy’s only chance of playing for a team who can consistently challenge for a top-four finish.
If he were to sign a new contract, however, the striker risks missing out on a dream summer move, and by the time the next transfer window comes around, he will be 30 years of age - very few top clubs sign players once they pass 30.
There is no doubting Vardy has the goalscoring pedigree to be successful at a top club, it's just a case of whether he's content with life at the King Power Stadium or has the ambition to play for a top European club.
