Jamie Vardy insists Leicester City match his ambitions amid speculation one of Europe’s giants could try and snare the striker.

Vardy scored for the 11th consecutive Premier League match last weekend to set a new record and there has been talk of a big move for the former non-league striker.

Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal have all been mooted as potential suitors while Real Madrid have also been credited with an interest.

Vardy, who is under contract until 2018, has stressed he is happy at Leicester and also paid tribute to Foxes boss Claudio Ranieri.

When asked if the club could match his ambitions, Vardy told the Leicester Mercury: “Yes I do. I think the gaffer has come in and told the owners what he wants to do, and he wants to keep progressing.

“He wants to progress on what we did last year and then, in the years to come, he wants to keep us going up and up and up. It is great for the club and he is a great manager.

“He comes across as quite funny sometimes because he has not got the full English language yet, but he is brilliant for the players and the club in general.”

Leicester travel to Swansea on Saturday and they are 2.60 to secure victory at the Liberty Stadium.

The Swans, who have managed just three wins so far this term in the Premier League, are 2.70 and the draw is 3.25.
