Leicester City striker, Jamie Vardy has joined the league of football club owners after investing in the US-based team, Rochester Rhinos.
It was gathered that the England striker acquired a minority stake in Rochester Rhinos, which has not played a competitive game for the past four years.
The development was disclosed by the New York-based club in a statement released on Twitter.
The statement read: “The Rochester Rhinos are delighted to announce that Premier League star Jamie Vardy has become a co-owner of the club.”
“The Leicester City striker has bought a minority stake and is excited by the prospect of being part of a journey that puts the Rhinos and Rochester back on the map after a 4-year hiatus.”
“We are delighted that Vardy has chosen to join us as a co-owner.”
The 34-year-old player helped his club to finish the fifth position on the Premier League table last season.
