Leicester ace Vardy's V9 academy snaps up Luther Wildin

Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy's V9 academy has snapped up local lad Luther Wildin, 20.

He plays as a defensive midfielder or right-back for Nuneaton in the sixth tier of English football and has earned great praise for his performances since joining the club last year.

Wildin said: “It is a great opportunity for myself and for the club. It shows we have good players here and I am looking forward to it.

"I am not going to let this distract me from the job I have here at Nuneaton. My aim is to continue with the form that has led me to be noticed in the first place. I have personal ambitions which include continuing to impress and develop. That is my main aim.

“But I cannot say I am not delighted. It is a huge honour and something I am looking forward to in the summer."
