Vardy becomes first Premier League player to score 100 goals after age 30

Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy has become the first English Premier League player to score 100 goals after the age of 30.

In Leicester’s 4-0 win over Wolverhampton Wanderers on Sunday, the Leicester veteran replaced Patson Daka in the 61st minute to score his historic goal.

Vardy was followed by Ian Wright, who scored 93 goals after the age of 30, while Newcastle legend Alan Shearer was third on the list with 84 goals.

Vardy, 35, joined Leicester from League One’s Fleetwood Town in 2012 and has scored 165 goals and provided 67 assists in 397 games.

He was one of the key players in Leicester City’s surprising 2016 Premier League championship.
