Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy reportedly agrees a deal for a new behind-the-scenes documentary.

Jamie Vardy has reportedly signed a deal for a new documentary that will chart his final season at Leicester City.

The 37-year-old has just entered the final season of his current contract with the Foxes and is expected to leave the club next summer after 13 years - potentially retiring from his playing career at the same time.

The striker - instrumental to Leicester's remarkable title win in 2015-16 - has agreed to let cameras film him during the final season, including at his home which he shares with wife Rebekah Vardy and their children.

"Jamie is working on a film about his life and it will centre on his final season at the King Power stadium," a source told The Sun. "He is like a god to fans, and the film will be a celebration of all his incredible achievements.

"When Jamie signed from non-league Fleetwood Town in 2012, no one could have predicted the path his career would take. He won the league with Leicester almost a decade ago, and after vowing to stick with them until they were promoted again, Jamie has really come good on his promises.

"As well as taking in his achievements at the club, the film will show a side to Jamie that only his friends and family usually see.

"He used to drink a lot when he played in the lower leagues but he curbed that when he came to City after a talking-to from the boss - and became one of the club's ­greatest players.

"He is a low-key guy who lives a pretty quiet life and fans will be able to see what makes him tick.

"Becky is involved too but the spotlight is very much going to be on Jamie. No-one wants to turn this into a circus."

A broadcaster has yet to be confirmed for the documentary, although it is expected to be bought by a streaming platform for release next year.
