Hull defender Elder: Bowen just like Vardy

Former Leicester City defender Callum Elder has likened Hull City teammate Jarrod Bowen to Jamie Vardy.

Elder left the King Power Stadium in the summer to sign a three-year contract with the Tigers.

Elder reckons that both Bowen and Vardy possess similar qualities which makes them both clinical in front of goal.

"I've said it to a lot of lads, a lot of staff, especially coming from Leicester - he is one of the most clinical players I've ever played with," Elder told the Hull Daily Mail.

“He doesn't have many shots but he finds the back of the net time and time again.

"He's a joy to play with, he's so positive. He always wants to beat his man, he always wants to influence the game and I'm really enjoying being one of his team-mates.

"Jamie Vardy is obviously in that category of clinical but Bowen is up there, 100 per cent.

"Look at Jarrod's goal on Saturday against the run of play, touch and finish. On Wednesday, another goal with his weaker foot.

"He is a really impressive player."
