Leicester confident that striker Jamie Vardy will reject Arsenal transfer

Arsenal triggered Vardy’s £20million release clause before the Euros but the 29-year-old has not yet made a decision on his future

Leicester remain hopeful of keeping striker Jamie Vardy away from potential suitors, according to vice-chairman Aiyawatt Srivaddhanaprabha.

Vardy scored 24 Premier League goals last season for the surprise champions, one behind golden boot winner Harry Kane to earn a place with England at Euro 2016, where he grabbed a vital equaliser as a substitute in Thursday’s 2-1 win over Wales.

That has seen him linked with Arsenal, who have reportedly made a £20million bid for the 29-year-old, though his future plans remain on hold while he focuses on the tournament.

But Srivaddhanaprabha told the Daily Mail: “You will see the news very soon, but I think he will stay.
