Vardy on Real Madrid rumours: It is all speculation

The Premier League player of the Month for October has been attracting speculation, including from Los Blancos, but insists he is happy at the King Power Stadium
Leicester City forward Jamie Vardy has branded reports linking him with a January move to Real Madrid as "speculation".

Following a stunning start to the 2015-16 season, the England international has been linked with a shock transfer to Rafael Benitez's side, while Liverpool and Tottenham have also been reportedly planning a move.

Vardy has scored in nine consecutive Premier League matches - putting him one short of Ruud van Nistelrooy's record of 10 - and insisted he has no plans to leave Leicester after such a fine goalscoring run.

"It is all speculation, it is as simple as that," the 28-year-old said to Sky Sports when asked about the talk of a move to Madrid.

"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."


Vardy has scored 12 goals in as many league games this season but was reluctant to set a total figure he would like to have reached by the end of the campaign after winning the Premier League Player of the Month award for October.

He continued: "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."

Vardy has the chance to match Van Nistelrooy's record when Leicester play Newcastle United at St James' Park after the international break.
