Liverpool & Tottenham target and in-form striking talent reveals his transfer intentions

Rumoured Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur transfer target Jamie Vardy has commented on rumours linking him with a move to Real Madrid.

Vardy won the Barclays Premier League Player of the Month award for October following a superb spell as Leicester City have established themselves in the top four.

The England international, who is the EPL’s top scorer with 12 goals in 12 appearances so far this season, opened the month with a goal against Norwich City, before bagging a brace against Southampton and hitting efforts in consecutive matches against Crystal Palace, West Bromwich Albion and Watford.

The Foxes won each of these games by just one goal, demonstrating Vardy’s value for Claudio Ranieri’s side.

The striker’s superb contribution has seen him linked with a move away from the King Power Stadium.

ESPN reported at the end of October that Premier League heavyweights Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur were both keeping tabs on the striker, while Fichajes [via the Metro] reported last month that Real Madrid were also keen on the hitman.

According to the report, the Merengues have identified Vardy as an excellent contender to provide competition for Karim Benzema, and as the Foxes are not playing in Europe, he would be eligible for the Champions League.

However, speaking to Sky Sports, the international frontman has denied suggestions that he is set to leave the East Midlands, and has dismissed the link with Real.

“It’s all speculation, it’s as simple as that,” Vardy began. “I am happy with what I am doing at Leicester and long may that continue.”

The striker’s comments would appear to suggest that as well as Rafael Benitez’s Merengues, both Liverpool and Spurs may also be disappointed should they attempt to move for the forward.
