He has become the frontman for Leicester's unlikely title tilt and will this summer head to Euro 2016 with the England team.

"I think someone put a spell on me to make it happen this season, everyone works as hard as well as themselves and if someone is having an off game then we know we have someone behind us to pick us up and keep us going," he said after a 3-1 win over Everton.
Long, hard process
"It's been a very, very long and hard process to get where I am today. But I wouldn't have been able to do it without friends, and the team behind me as well so I'll go congratulate the boys now and get ready for the celebrations.

"It's an unbelievable feeling for everyone involved. I can't describe it with words.
"But if it weren't for the lads here then I wouldn't have scored the goals I did. You don't get nowhere by not having the foundations. We're literally like brothers as soon as training is finished we're always in touch.
"After the Tottenham result, the police shut down the street outside my house. There were thousands of fans but it's been an unbelievable week so to top it off with this win is great."
