Report: Swansea City turned down £800k Jamie Vardy move in 2012

Ex-Swansea boss Michael Laudrup once snubbed an £800,000 move for in-demand Leicester City star Jamie Vardy, according to reports.

Swansea City reportedly rejected the chance to sign in-form Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy for £800,000 in 2012.

The 28-year-old is heavily linked with a move to one of England's elite clubs after scoring in 11 successive Premier League games to break Ruud van Nistelrooy's record.

It has been a remarkable rise for a player who was representing non-League Fleetwood Town as recently as 2012, before joining the Foxes for a reported £1m.

However, ex-Swans boss Michael Laudrup had the opportunity to sign Vardy for £200,000 less, but the Dane opted against the transfer, according to Wales Online.

The England international, whose story could be turned into a Hollywood movie, is expected to line up against Swansea in South Wales this weekend.
