Leicester striker Vardy opens door for England return

Leicester City forward Jamie Vardy is not ruling out an England return.

The 33-year-old is currently the Premier League's top scorer for this season with 19 goals.

And with the Euros pushed back to next year, Vardy hasn't ruled out a return to Gareth Southgate's squad.

He told The Athletic: "We've never totally closed the door, we made that clear. But there are a lot of really good, young England forwards out there and they'd benefit more — just say if I was there getting picked, I'm taking one of their places.

"I've definitely benefitted from getting a full summer, relaxing, just completely clearing your head. It just gives your body and your mind a complete shut-off."
