English daily newspaper The Times has learned that Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy has a £30 million release clause in his contract.
The 29-year-old became one of Europe’s most sought-after footballers after the impressive start to his second Premier League season, but he resisted temptation to join a top English club in January and instead signed a new and improved deal at King Power Stadium.
And it has now been revealed that a £30 million release clause was inserted in said contract, meaning that Leicester City will have no say if a club match their valuation.
Jamie Vardy is widely expected to be part of England squad at the Euro 2016 finals, and a big club move could be on the cards as well.
The highly rated footballer leads the Premier League goalscoring charts with 19 goals in 29 appearances, but he has failed to score in four England caps.
