Vardy

Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy says it was an “easy” decision to reject Arsenal despite the intense interest shown by Gunners this summer.

The Gunners have reportedly activated the £25m release clause of Jamie Vardy but the English international have made up his decision as he chose to stay at Leicester for the upcoming season.

Jamie Vardy has been phenomenal last season as he scored 24 goals and assisted six more in Premier League which has helped the club do the impossible as they clinched their maiden Premier League title.

In an interview with Sky Sports, Vardy has revealed that he never held talks with Arsenal for a potential transfer and insists that he still has “unfinished business” at Leicester City.

“It’s not been put out there that I have always said the boys, the close-knit brotherhood, is unbelievable and for me, there’s a lot of unfinished business here,” he said.

“I feel that the club is only going one way and that is forward, that’s why I want to be a part of it.

“It wasn’t that big [the decision] when I think about it. It was quite easy and this is where I want to be.”

Asked about the speculations surrounding Riyad Mahrez with the Algerian linked with a move to Emirates, Jamie Vardy wants the 25-year old midfielder to follow his steps and stay at the club.

“I think everyone in the squad would want him here, playing with us, but that’s nothing to do with us and it’s down to Riyad and the club to sort out,” Vardy added.
