Jamie Vardy open to England return amid fitness fears over Harry Kane

Jamie Vardy has left the door open for an England recall ahead of this summer's European Championships as Gareth Southgate sweats on the fitness of Harry Kane and Marcus Rashford.

The Leicester front man called time on his international career after the World Cup in 2018.

But his form this year for the Foxes has seen him linked with a return as the Three Lions target glory with the latter stages of the tournament at Wembley.

Kane and Rashford would be above Vardy in the pecking order but the pair may not make the tournament or at least not be fully fit.

And the 33-year-old concedes he and Southgate have not discussed an England return, but it is something he would consider.

He told Sky Sports : "Who knows? Gareth and I were both agreed that the door would still be open for whatever reason and then we would sit down and have a talk about it [if needed].

"We've not had the chat or anything yet and nothing has been spoken about. The lads (Kane and Rashford) are out injured, but they're looking to be back in time. So only time will tell.

"I'm not going to lie, I've had a few extra days off in the international breaks so I've been able to switch off completely from football and it is always beneficial sometimes.

"Knowing that when you get back it's constant again, it's 100 per cent football every day so it's one of those things that has benefited me."

Vardy is the Premier League's top scorer this term with 17 strikes – ahead of Kane, Rashford and Tammy Abraham.
