The new kid on the block
Leicester City confirm the signing of Jamie Vardy on 18 May, 2012. He arrives having scored 34 goals in a single season for non-league Fleetwood Town, but can he make the step up?
Premier League bound
Vardy's second full season at King Power Stadium ends with promotion to the Premier League - the next chapter of his astonishing rise is ready to be written.
Stunning the Red Devils
After netting 16 goals in the Sky Bet Championship to fire the Foxes towards the second-tier title in 2013/14, Vardy made his full Premier League debut against Louis van Gaal's Manchester United. City's No.9 registered four assists and a maiden top-flight goal in a 5-3 victory.
The Great Escape
A last-gasp winner at West Bromwich Albion injects new life into City's bid for Premier League survival, starting a sequence of seven wins from nine matches to end the 2014/15 campaign. Bottom at the start of April, the Foxes would finish the year in 14th place.
The streak begins
A euphoric goal celebration as Vardy nets Leicester's second in a 3-2 comeback victory over Aston Villa at King Power Stadium early on in 2015/16. That was the former Fleetwood Town striker's second consecutive goalscoring outing in the Premier League...
A familiar hunting ground
The goals keep coming - against Stoke City, Arsenal, Norwich City, Southampton and Crystal Palace - including another winner at the Hawthorns against West Bromwich Albion.
Leicester climb to the Premier League summit for the first time since 2000 in November of the 2015/16 season, but the name Jamie Vardy is on everyone's lips. Another goal away at Newcastle United means he had scored in 10 consecutive Premier League matches.
Christian Fuchs' no-look pass is latched onto by Leicester's No.9, who sweeps the ball past David de Gea, sparking one of King Power Stadium's greatest-ever goal celebrations. Ruud van Nistelrooy's record is no more. Jamie Vardy is a history-maker for the Foxes.
Edging closer to glory
A magnificent volley sends City on their way to a win over Liverpool after New Year as the world begins to take the Club's title charge seriously. After starting out as 5,000/1 rank outsiders, people start to contemplate whether the Foxes could actually win the league.
From non-league to Premier League champion. Leicester City win the Premier League despite all the odds - and Jamie Vardy scores 24 goals along the way. After a 3-1 win over Everton in City's final home game of 2015/16, the Foxes striker gets his hands on the trophy.
The season ends with an array of personal awards for Vardy - who scoops the Premier League Player of the Season and FWA Footballer of the Year, alongside a place in the PFA Team of the Year.
A brilliant trio of goals in December 2016 secures a 4-2 success over Pep Guardiola's Manchester City on Filbert Way. His first hat-trick for the Club and a first in the Premier League too.
Netting in Europe
A first-ever goal in the UEFA Champions League, at the Round of 16 stage, gives Leicester a precious away goal at Sevilla. City lose the game 2-1 in Spain, but return to Leicester to win 2-0, sending them into the quarter-finals of Europe's greatest club competition.
Extraordinary goals aplenty
The goalscoring goes on and on for Vardy in 2017/18. His superb lob in a win over Tottenham Hotspur is just one of many stunning strikes for the Foxes over the No.9's career. Aside from his first year in the Premier League, Vardy has never not hit double figures in the top flight.
After his debut in 2015, Vardy nets seven goals for his country - his last coming against Italy at Wembley in 2018 - before turning his attentions to club football. Leicester's No.9 starred at the 2016 European Championships and the 2018 World Cup - as the Three Lions reached the semi-finals.
The Premier League 100 Club
Leicester City's greatest-ever Premier League striker joins the division's 100 club at the end of the 2019/20 season.
The Golden Boot
Although one less than his career best, Vardy's 23 Premier League goals in 2019/20 wins him the Golden Boot. He finishes above Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Danny Ings, Raheem Sterling, Mohamed Salah, Harry Kane in the final charts.
An FA Cup winner at last
After starring in the early preliminary rounds during his playing days at Stocksbridge Park Steels, Halifax and Fleetwood Town, Vardy progresses all the way through to the final in 2020/21 and lifts the oldest and most celebrated domestic cup competition in the world.
Another piece of silverware
2021/22 begins with another moment to savour as City pick up the FA Community Shield with victory over Premier League champions Manchester City at Wembley. Vardy has now won the Championship, Premier League, FA Cup and Community Shield at the Club.
The goals continue
Despite suffering injuries through the 2021/22 season, Jamie Vardy remains Leicester City's top Premier League goalscorer, with 14 (16 in all competitions). He's taken his all league tally over 150 goals for the Club and is City's third all-time top goalscorer with 163.
