Jamie Vardy is a football player who plays as a striker for Leicester City football club. He is one of the most praised players from the Premier league.
Jamie started his youth career at Sheffield Wednesday F.C., but they released him after one season, so he moved to Stocksbridge Park Steels F.C. in 2003. His next transfer was orchestrated by a F.C. Halifax Town manager, in a transfer worth around 20 thousand dollars!
After a successful season with F.C. Halifax Town, in which he scored 26 times in 37 matches, Vardy decided to move to Fleetwood Town F.C., and had a great season with 36 appearances and 31 goals!
Luckily for him scouts from Leicester City F.C. noticed him, and he moved to Leicester for 1.3 million dollars! Since then, his market value grew up to 23 million dollars, according to Transfermarkt.
It is often claimed that he was a key player in the Leicester City squad during the 2015/2016 season, when they won the Premier League. He scored 24 goals in the Premier League that season, and finished the season as the second best goalscorer in the league, with only one goal less than Harry Kane, who won the Golden Boot award!
During 2016, his market value jumped from less than 3 million dollars to $25 million!
Before Jamie turned pro, he worked as a technician for medical splints, and trained football at the same time. He was convicted for assault after the brawl in front of a bar in 2007, and he had to wear electronic tag for half a year, with a strict limits regarding the time he was able to spend outside of his home.
However, that didn’t stop him from training at Stocksbridge Park Steels, and from becoming a football legend as he is today!

If you're not playing with any confidence, then you're not going to play well at all. You've always got to have that inner confidence, and that comes with the goals.
No one can take their place or their England shirt for granted. If I want to be in that squad, I need to keep banging in the goals to make sure I stay in the manager's plans.
Everyone works hard for each other, and if we're having an off day, everyone else is there to pick things up.
Don't ask me about VAR. I don't even know what it stands for.
Confidence is sky high, but we're also all very grounded. We know, in football, nothing can be taken for granted.
My diet is not unorthodox. I just eat like anyone else - that's just how I am. Everyone is different. It is just my metabolism that keeps me this slim.
I don't really leave the house. Literally, I train, come home, look after the kids, the dogs, my missus... then it's time to go to bed.
I got given a pair of Christmas socks with penguins on. They know you're obviously not going to wear them. I think they do it just to annoy you, to be honest.
There's a lot of people blocked on my Twitter for various reasons which I don't need to get into.
