Claude Puel: Jamie Vardy is the complete player

Vardy has only scored two goals during that period, but Puel has described the England global as "the complete player" ahead of the club's meeting with Newcastle United on Saturday evening.

Leicester City boss Claude Puel has heaped praise on Jamie Vardy with the striker playing a leading role in the club's recent improvement in the Premier League.

Leicester have won half of Puel's six matches in charge, including back-to-back victories against Tottenham and Burnley.

"I think Jamie Vardy is the complete player. I was surprised to know his qualities". "The most important thing is to continue the hard work and to keep building momentum and confidence".

Robert Huth and Matty James remain out with respective ankle and Achilles problems, with the former yet to make an appearance this season, and no date has been set for the pair's comeback. We need to try and improve all the time.

"Time will tell. The window is not open, we will see".
