Vardy dismisses Real ‘speculation’

Leicester City forward Jamie Vardy insists rumours linking him with a move to Real Madrid as 'speculation' and remains focused on the Foxes.

Vardy has arguably been the most impressive so far in the Premier League this season, netting 12 goals in as many games, helping Claudio Ranieri's side to third place ahead of the international break.

The 28-year-old's stunning form has seen him linked with a sensational move to Los Blancos, but Vardy says his only aim is to continue improving at the King Power Stadium.

"It is all speculation, it is as simple as that," Vardy is quoted as saying by Sky Sports.

"I am happy with what I am doing at Leicester and long may that continue. It has been a brilliant start for myself as well as the team.

"I have already doubled my tally from last year but I don't set myself any targets. I just want to keep on improving as much as possible and the way the season has started I could not ask for much more really."
