Jamie Vardy's old Mercedes up for sale

Leicester City fans are being given a chance to get their hands on a car once owned by Jamie Vardy, the striker whose goalscoring exploits helped his team beat odds of 5,000-1 to lift the Premier League trophy.

But the current owner of the white Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG is not cashing in too much on its history.

Essex-based Danny Sangster is selling the three-year-old car for £38,500, only a couple of thousand pounds more than similar cars are said to fetch.

The 2013 car, which had a number of football stadiums programmed into its sat-nav when Mr Sangster bought it, has less than 15,000 miles on the clock and a black leather interior.

Whoever ends up buying it will also get a packet of limited edition ready salted crisps, produced by Leicester-based Walkers to mark Vardy's achievement earlier in the season when he scored in 11 Premier League games in a row.

Vardy, 29, who was playing non-league football just a few years ago, notched up 24 Premier League goals to help Leicester City win their first ever title. He is expected to be in the England squad for this summer's Euro 2016 tournament in France.
