Wayne Rooney Reveals Son Wants England Shirt With Jamie Vardy's Name On The Back

But is the dad-of-three pleased with his choice?

Wayne Rooney has revealed one of his sons has asked him for a brand-new England football kit - but he doesn't want his own surname on the back. 

"My lad has asked me to get him and England kit with [Jamie] Vardy on the back," Rooney - who is dad to six-year-old Kai, two-year-old Klay and two-month-old Kit, - joked on ITV during England's game against Holland.

Luckily, the England captain had a few good words to say about Vardy, who plays for Leicester City and the England team.

"The impact [Vardy] has had on the Premier League is great for English football," Rooney added.

"Hopefully he can continue that."

Rooney didn't reveal which of his sons wanted the t-shirt, but it's likely to be his eldest who often joins him when watching football games. 

In December 2015, the pair were seen during a father-son outing at an Everton football match.
