David Seaman believes the secret to success is Jamie Vardy.

Ever since Arsenal were linked to the Leicester City striker, everyone and their dogs have had a chance to voice their opinion and the former goalkeeper is just the latest.

He believes that signing the 29-year-old will mean we ‘look good’ as a squad and we would only need to sign another defender to be successful next season.

“They need a central defender, they’ve signed a new midfield player now, get Vardy and then we’re looking good,” the ex-England keeper said.

“You look at the spine of the team. You’ve got Petr Cech in goal, brilliant. We maybe need one centre-half and then a striker.

“But they are additions to a great squad, it’s not as though the squad is crying out for it or performing badly. We did have a good season, we finished second.”

Could Vardy be the missing piece of the puzzle that we’ve been looking for? The piece that’s we’ve been after for years? The piece that we thought we’d found so we tried to jam it into the space aggressively, misshaping it and wearing it down? I don’t think so.

Nor do I think that he would be a flop. For what it counts, looking at it from a strictly footballing viewpoint, I reckon he’d be a good addition. That’s the only way I can look at it thus far.
