According to reports in the UK, Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy will be handed an extra-match ban for improper conduct after lashing out at referee Jon Moss in a match against West Ham earlier this month.

The Foxes’ leading scorer could now miss next Sunday’s match at Manchester United, a game in which a win would see Leicester clinch the Premier League title.

Vardy was shown a second yellow card and subsequent red for diving in a 2-2 draw with West Ham on April 17. As he left the pitch, he could be seen angrily shouting in the face of the official.

The sending off warranted a mandatory one-match suspension, with The FA reviewing the case for possible further punishment.

Leicester City beat Swansea 4-0 this past weekend without Vardy in the lineup.
