English Premier League’s current top scorer Jamie Vardy has denied rumors linking him to Real Madrid, stressing he is “very happy” at Leicester City.
Speaking to Sky Sports ahead of England’s friendlies with Spain and France about the transfer rumors to Real Madrid, he said “It’s all speculation, it’s as simple as that.”
“I am happy with what I am doing at Leicester and long may that continue. It has been a brilliant start for myself as well as the team”. he added.
Vardy is named as Premier League Player of the Month for October, overtaking the likes of Kevin De Bruyne, Mesut Özil, Olivier Giroud, Odion Ighalo and Jack Butland in the voting.

The 28-year-old striker has been in sensational form this season after scoring in the last nine consecutive Premiership matches, taking his tally to 12 goals this games in as many games.
If he score a goal against Newcastle in his next outing, Vardy will equal Ruud van Nistelrooy’s scoring record in 10 consecutive Premier League matches.
His brilliant goal scoring records this season has already attracted interests from many Premier League and European giants and Leicester City has reportedly set a £15m price tag on Vardy.
The asking price set by Leicester won’t be a problem for Real Madrid or the likes of Manchester United or Chelsea. If Vardy keeps his brilliant form in front of the goal, we may see him ending up at one these top sides at the end of the season.
But at the same time, Leicester are well poised to challenge for Champions League Qualification next season and if they can do so Vardy may well decide to stay at the King Power Stadium.
