Barnes grateful to call on Vardy as Leicester teammate

Harvey Barnes admits he's fortunate to be playing with senior Leicester City teammate Jamie Vardy.

Barnes revealed he has not sought advice from Vardy but is taking tips by watching the veteran striker up close, both in training and in matches.

He said: “Being able to play with him on the pitch and watch it first-hand is the best way to learn.

“He's one of the best at it so it's the perfect example for me to learn off him and add things that he does so well in his game to mine.

“A lot of his goals are one-on-ones with the keeper. Watching his composure and just seeing how he picks his spot, the majority of the time he scores them.

“It's just making sure when I get those opportunities, I'm also doing the same."
