Jamie Vardy is a cult-hero at Leicester City with him possibly being one of their greatest players in history due to the success that he has brought to the club. Signed for just £1 million from Fleetwood at the time made him the most expensive football league signing at the time and he went on to be the talisman in the 2016 Premier League upset win where Leicester were priced at 5000/1 after their great escape the season before. Vardy became part of the 100 club in terms of Premier League goals and will go down in PL folk law for his success story.
Vincent Kompany was actually signed for Manchester City before they were taken over by Abu Dhabi for £6 million. Kompany was seen as one of the best centre-backs that the Premier League has seen having won 4 Premier League titles at the Sky Blues and will go down in their history as one of the most important players in their golden era which change the blue side of Manchester forever.
Frank Lampard was signed to Chelsea from bitter rivals West Ham back in 2001 for around £11 million which at the time seemed a lot of money and Lampard has a lot of doubters over this price tag, but wow did he silence his critics by becoming one of the most successful PL midfielders of this generation and becoming the top-scoring midfielder in the Premier League Era. He won a total of 13 trophies at Chelsea including the famous Champions League win against Bayern Munich in 2012.
