Leicester City sign non-league striker Josh Gordon

The reigning Premier League champions are hoping to pull another Jamie Vardy as they signed a new non-league striker they hope will be able to repeat the England international’s success.

A successor to Jamie Vardy, a former Stocksbridge Park Steels, Halifax and Fleetwood Town striker who achieved world-wide fame with his impressive goal scoring exploits last season at the Foxes, is called Josh Gordon and is coming from Stafford Rangers.

The 22-year-old striker is competing in the Northern Premier League, where his side is currently occupying the 14th place.

The youngster who scored 11 goals in the seventh tier of English football this season has agreed on an 18-month deal with the Premier League champions after a successful trial period with the Foxes at the King Power Stadium.

Josh Gordon confirmed his move to Leicester City on Facebook.

Leicester City are sitting in 11th place in the Premier League, with 36 points from 31 games.

The Foxes have made serious improvement under new boss following a poor spell of results which saw their hero manager Claudio Ranieri get sacked.
