Rochester Rhinos owner Vardy: Am I quitting Leicester...?

Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy insists he's not thinking about retirement.

The veteran has just bought a minority stake in former USL club Rochester Rhinos.

Vardy said: "I have no plans to quit football. I want to play for Leicester as long as possible, I will try to be successful with the team.

"The fact that I became a co-owner of the American 'Rochester' does not change anything. It will not affect what I do on the football field. I want to play for Leicester as long as my physical condition allows, I want to be at the top level.

"If in Leicester they say that my time has come, then I will take a look at what situation I will find myself in, but now I have no desire to move anywhere."
