Cardiff City have been rejected by striker Jamie Vardy, who impressed this season with Fleetwood Town. The 25 year old has instead opted to join our Championship rivals Leicester City who are continuing to spend big in pursuit of promotion having flattered to deceive last campaign.

Vardy averaged almost a goal a game as he fired Fleetwod to promotion, scoring over 30 goals, but his goalscoring exploits impressed a number of Championship clubs including Cardiff City.

According to Sky Sports, Cardiff City’s bid also matched Fleetwood’s demands of £1m plus add-ons but it was the player himself who opted for the Foxes.

Malky Mackay will now switch his attention to other targets as he looks to bolster the front-line and provide competition for Mason, Miller and Gestede.
