Foxes dip into non-league pool for Gordon

Leicester could just have landed the new Jamie Vardy after they acquired the services of Josh Gordon from non-league side Stafford Rangers.

Vardy went from rags to riches following his move from Fleetwood Town in 2012, going on to win the Championship in 2014 before firing the Foxes to the Premier League title against all odds last season.

The England international is now mixing it with Europe's elite in the UEFA Champions League, having spent the first five years of his career in the lower leagues of English football with Stocksbridge Park Steels, Halifax Town and Fleetwood.

The East Midlands club will be hoping for a similar impact from Gordon, who has scored 18 goals for Rangers in the seventh tier this term.

The 22-year-old earned himself an 18-month deal at the King Power Stadium following a successful trial with Craig Shakespeare's side.

 "I am delighted to finally announce that I have officially signed for the English champions Leicester City," Gordon wrote on Facebook.

"I'm looking forward to the beginning of this new chapter in my life, the hard work starts now."
