Jamie Vardy has a £30 million buyout clause in his new Leicester City contract, according to The Times.

The 29-year-old has been one of the standout players in the Premier League this season and was rewarded with a new three-and-a-half-year deal worth £80,000 at the King Power Stadium. 

With 19 goals from 29 league games this season, Vardy has acted as the club's talisman as they go in search of making history in England's elite division.

As it stands, of course, the Foxes currently sit at the summit of the table - five points ahead of north London outfit Tottenham. The form of Vardy, then, could yet hand Claudio Ranieri's side the title this term. 

Unsurprisingly, after a remarkable opening half to the campaign, Vardy was linked to a number of clubs in the January transfer window. 


The same report from The Times claims that Manchester United and Chelsea were interested in the England international in the winter window while it has also been claimed that Spurs previously monitored the player. 

While United and co. may well have been put off by Vardy's new deal with the Premier League table-toppers, it appears that he could still be on the move at the end of the season. 

Despite earning a huge sum with Leicester, it seems that a £30m bid from one of the Premier League big boys would be enough for the in-form forward to move on ahead of the 2016/17 season. 

Vardy decision 

But why would he leave Leicester? 

United and Chelsea have been two of the leading forces in England throughout the Premier League era, but both clubs could have to make-do without Champions League football for next season. 

Leicester, on the other hand, look all but set to claim a spot in Europe's elite competition. The Premier League title may well be the aim, but the club's 11 point advantage over fifth-placed West Ham has to excite all involved. 

Incredibly, at this stage of the season, a second-placed finish would be recognised as failure, but it would still represent a remarkable achievement. 

Surely the likes of Vardy will be determined to embark on a European campaign with the club. The striker could light up Euro 2016 in the summer and there's no reason why he won't be able to prove his credentials in the biggest club tournament next term. 

Forget about the buyout clause, Vardy shouldn't consider a move away from the King Power Stadium.
