It led to striker Danny Newton last week clinching a contract at League Two Stevenage after leaving Conference North side Tamworth.
Now Vardy's latest find Turgott is also on the brink of a deal with Stevenage after travelling for a medical yesterday (Monday) ahead of penning a one-year deal.
Turgott, 23, is an ex-England U19 player and West Ham youngster who was languishing at Bromley last season after falling down the leagues.
He has had off the field problems after being charged in April with fraud offences.
But Turgott expects to be cleared at a hearing in October after presenting new evidence and it has persuaded Stevenage to give him another chance.
