Wrexham eye Premier League winner Jamie Vardy

WREXHAM’S rise in the football world could be set for another Hollywood twist as club director Humphrey Ker hasn’t dismissed the idea of signing Leicester City legend and Premier League champion Jamie Vardy.

Jamie Vardy’s football journey reads like a script from Hollywood, climbing from non-league football all the way to the Premier League, famously clinching the top-flight title and an FA Cup with Leicester along the way.

At 37, Vardy remains a force, pivotal in Leicester’s Championship victory with 18 goals, though uncertainty looms over his future with the Midlands club as his contract expires in June.

One thing is certain – Vardy isn’t contemplating retirement just yet. A member of the Premier League 100 Club, Vardy asserted, “Listen, I’m not ready to hang up my boots. My legs feel fine and I’m as fit as ever, so we’ll see what happens.”

Vardy won’t be short of suitors, with his credentials appealing to several Premier League and Championship clubs. Even Wrexham, currently in League One, could attract Vardy, given the club’s ambition under co-owners Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney, known for luring talent beyond their current league standing.

Players of Football League calibre such as Paul Mullin and Elliot Lee joined Wrexham’s ranks during their National League days. Additionally, former Premier League star James McClean is among Wrexham’s squad. The club secured a second consecutive promotion this season, rising to League One after finishing as runners-up behind Stockport in the fourth tier.

Director Humphrey Ker has not dismissed the idea of a bold move for Vardy as Wrexham aims for Championship promotion and harbours dreams of reaching the Premier League.

Ker expressed to SPORTbible, “There’s no reason why Jamie Vardy couldn’t excel at Wrexham. While his name hasn’t come up internally, age and experience wouldn’t deter us.”
