Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy and wife Rebekah have put their 10-seater corporate box at the King Power Stadium up for auction to raise money for a charity foundation named after late team owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha, who lost his life in a helicopter crash last week.

Leicester host Burnley in an EPL match on Saturday and the highest bidder can watch that match from the luxury enclosure with the Vardys promising to drop in too. Rebekah wrote on Twitter: "Jamie and I are auctioning off our executive box including hospitality and personal visit from Jamie for the upcoming game against Burnley. All proceeds will go to the Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha Foundation email vsfauction@lcfc.co.uk to make bids #lcfc." Jamie's signed boots from Saturday's win over Cardiff is also up for grabs.

Jamie was Vichai's favourite player having guided them to the 2016 title. The couple got very emotional while laying a wreath in memory of Vichai at the King Power Stadium recently.
