[Jamie Vardy on hearing the news of his former club’s plans to name a 450-seat stand in his honour] The chairman must be crackers. And, put it this way, I’d have never seen it coming when I was at Stocksbridge

[Jamie Vardy on who he would like to see play himself in a rumoured Hollywood film about the rise of the Leicester City striker] At the minute, the film does look like it’s probably going to go ahead. They must be mad to be honest with you, but (they) want to do it. We’ll have to wait and see, but I’d like Vinnie Jones

[Jamie Vardy reveals why he chose to stay at English Premier League champions Leicester City when speaking to Sky Sports] I’ve always said the brotherhood at Leicester is unbelievable. Personally I feel I have a lot of unfinished business here. It wasn’t that big a decision, it was quite easy, this is where I wanted to be

[Sevilla midfielder Samir Nasri has branded Jamie Vardy a cheater. Nasri has accused the England striker of making the most of the confrontation and believes he conned referee Daniele Orsato into sending him off] I’m not a cheat and I never have been. That’s all I’ve got to say on the matter

I’m a nightmare on the pitch, aren’t I? I get abuse from opposition fans and give it back to them. But that’s just me - and that’s how it should be; it’s only a bit of banter

[Jamie Vardy speaks about the tragic loss of owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha] It’s been one of the hardest weeks for myself and the lads. The players want to be there [at the funeral] after everything the owner has shown in the players and the club. It is an extended family, so family members should be there

[Jamie Vardy says former Leicester team-mate [N’Golo Kante](n-golo-kante.html) was a pleasure to play alongside] What a pleasure it was to play alongside N’Golo! He is an adorable guy alongside being a fantastic footballer: when we lost the ball, wherever that happened on the pitch, boom, he would appear and win it back for us. In training, it was so easy for him that I was convinced that he intentionally gave the ball away sometimes just to enjoy winning it back again. One day he said to us that he was seriously considering running to the training centre each day, which came from the fact that he would always add a little running session for himself. In the moment, we were all a bit taken aback and convinced him not to. In any case, each time that we saw him arrive at training with his Mini Cooper, we were reassured

[And Kante used the opportunity to catch up some old team-mates, including Vardy] Last month, after our match at Stamford Bridge, he came to say hello to us in the dressing room. The first thing that I asked him was: ‘Are you still driving your Mini Cooper, mate?’ He said to me that he had sent the model that he had at Leicester back to France but that he had bought a new Mini Cooper in the meantime!

[Despite Coleen’s evidence pointing towards Rebekah Vardy, the wife of the Foxes star has hit back at the claims, suggesting that her account had been accessed by others than her] As I have just said to you on the phone, I wish you had called me if you thought this. I never speak to anyone about you as various journalists who have asked me to over the years can vouch for. If you thought that this was happening you could have told me & I could have changed my passwords to see if it stopped. Over the years various people have had access to my insta & just this week I found I was following people I didn’t know and have never followed myself. I’m not being funny but I don’t need the money, what would I gain from selling stories on you? I liked you a lot Coleen & I’m so upset that you have chosen to do this, especially when I’m heavily pregnant

[Jamie Vardy revealed Leicester City felt they could break Manchester United’s Premier League record for the biggest ever win as they equalled the mark with a 9-0 rout on the road against 10-man Southampton] Well we actually found out [about the record] at 6-0 when Jonny Evans came sprinting over, saying if we carry on doing what we’re doing we can get the record. We’ve gone all the way to the end and managed to do it. It’s a great victory, a great performance for the lads and I’m absolutely buzzing for the fans. I think that was a complete performance. We know when you’ve got 10 men it can be made difficult but we also knew if we kept to our game plan we could cause them a lot of problems. Like you see from the result, credit to the boys, great win

[The England international is already a Premier League winner with the Foxes under Claudio Ranieri in 2015-16, but says this Brendan Rodgers Leicester team is a contrast] I think football-wise, it’s different, there was a lot of counter-attacking when we won the league. You saw from tonight that we can attack but keep the ball really well, at pace, and we can hurt anyone

[Vardy keeps door open to England return for Euro 2020 following Kane & Rashford injuries] Who knows? Gareth and I were both agreed that the door would still be open for whatever reason and then we would sit down and have a talk about it [if needed]. We’ve not had the chat or anything yet and nothing has been spoken about. The lads (Kane and Rashford) are out injured, but they’re looking to be back in time. So only time will tell. I’m not going to lie, I’ve had a few extra days off in the international breaks so I’ve been able to switch off completely from football and it is always beneficial sometimes. Knowing that when you get back it’s constant again, it’s 100 per cent football every day so it’s one of those things that has benefited me

It’s been a great start but you don’t want to be that team that has a great start and all of a sudden you’re not up there. We’ve got to keep working hard to try and pick up as many points as we can in these last 10 games. If anything, the inconsistency shows you that things are changing. Look at the squad we’ve got, we’re more than capable of beating anyone on the day and other teams up there like Sheffield United have been playing really well. They deserve to be up there. It’s the consistency that they’re putting in week in, week out. That’s where we’ve got to get back to, that consistency that we had in the first half of the season and hopefully that will keep us up there

[Why Vardy no longer plays for England] To be honest with you, this has been on my mind for a while. I’m not getting any younger and you can see, to be fair to the gaffer, he wants to make it more youthful, which obviously had its benefits during the World Cup - we got to the semi-finals and finished fourth, which is equal to the furthest we have ever been on foreign soil. So, I just said to Gareth that I think it’s probably best from now on, especially with the way he wants to go, to bring youngsters in who he thinks have got the ability and start nurturing them into international football

[Could Vardy come out of international retirement for Euro 2021?] Who knows? Gareth and I were both agreed that the door would still be open for whatever reason and then we would sit down and have a talk about it [if needed]. We’ve not had the chat or anything yet and nothing has been spoken about. The lads (Kane and Rashford) are out injured, but they’re looking to be back in time. So only time will tell

[Jamie Vardy in Premier League 100 club: Leicester striker scores two against Crystal Palace] I am absolutely over the moon. First and foremost it was about the win today, getting back to basics and putting in a performance. I am always frustrated if I miss a chance. You want to score as many as possible. But to score two goals and get the three points, that is all you can ask for. I will wait until the end of the season before I can start reflecting on stuff
