The France international midfielder spent a single season at the King Power Stadium but still made a big impression on the England striker.

Jamie Vardy says former Leicester team-mate N'Golo Kante was a "pleasure" to play alongside and revealed that the squad once had to convince the midfielder not to run to training.

“What a pleasure it was to play alongside N’Golo!" he said to L'Equipe.

"He is an adorable guy alongside being a fantastic footballer: when we lost the ball, wherever that happened on the pitch, boom, he would appear and win it back for us.

"In training, it was so easy for him that I was convinced that he intentionally gave the ball away sometimes just to enjoy winning it back again.

"One day he said to us that he was seriously considering running to the training centre each day, which came from the fact that he would always add a little running session for himself.

"In the moment, we were all a bit taken aback and convinced him not to. In any case, each time that we saw him arrive at training with his Mini Cooper, we were reassured.”
