Jamie Vardy

, who recently turned 34, has been struggling with a hip injury for some times.

Leicester boss, Brendan Rodgers believes the club should plan ahead for the probable vacancies to come.

“Of course, the backdrop is the club always has to be looking forward and planning forward, not just in Jamie’s position but in every position – it’s something which is an on-going process with every player.”

Rodgers said

“My job is to maximize the best we can get out of Jamie while he’s here and in my time here hopefully we have shown he is developing and continuing to develop. At that age you can still develop and improve on and off the pitch and he’s consistently showed that to me.”

The Irish also commented on his team’s situation:

“I understand we have been competitive for a long period of time. There’s a natural loop towards what would be deemed the big six clubs. I understand that.

“It’s something which has always happened and will continue to happen. I never worry about that, it’s about developing us as a team and a club.

“There is always a look towards those bigger clubs and I understand that.

“We’re very satisfied, the players have been outstanding in their application and their work.

“It’s something we always reiterate, you have to retain that hunger and desire which is very important when you want to be constantly in the top echelons of the league.

“There are a lot of big teams up there but our guys are competing and that’s all I can ask.

“Whatever form you are in, it doesn’t matter, you have to have the hunger and desire. It’s what my players show every single day.”
