Leicester City’s new training ground will help them sign a capable replacement for Jamie Vardy, former striker Emile Heskey believes. City are due to move into their £100m facility at Seagrave this summer and homegrown hero Heskey believes the state-of-the-art complex will ensure the club attracts a higher level of player. That will be important, with Heskey saying City will have to look beyond their star forward soon.
Emile Heskey said “It’s testament to the owners. It’s testament to Brendan [Rodgers] of what he’s creating there, he’s trying to create a culture, where players come and work hard, be disciplined and work as a group. He’s making individual players better. I know there were question marks over Vardy and whether he could adapt to the way Brendan wanted him to work but he has adapted very well and he’s flying. He’s one of their main players again. But he’s at an age where they will have to look at replacing him at some stage. He’s done fantastic. They’re moving into a new facility, they’ve got a new training ground that they’re moving into and that in itself will attract better players. It’s onwards and upwards for Leicester.”
