The offer is one of a number of prizes to be auctioned off to help raise money for Leicester’s foundation, which has been renamed in honour of their late chairman.

On Tuesday, an inquest into the helicopter crash said there was ‘minimal chance’ for anyone to survive.

Other items available in the auction are the boots Vardy wore in the 1-0 win at Cardiff on Saturday, with ‘Khun Vichai’ embroidered on them, and a pair of goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel’s gloves.
