Wenger confirms Vardy snubbed Arsenal move

Speaking on Japanese television, the Gunners boss believes the Premier League winner will stay at the King Power Stadium despite having his £20 million release clause met

Arsene Wenger has admitted Jamie Vardy is set to snub a move to Arsenal in favour of staying at Leicester City.

The Premier League-winning striker’s future has been subject to much speculation after Arsenal met his £20 million release clause.

Vardy refused to make a decision on a move to the Emirates Stadium before Euro 2016, preferring to settle matters after the tournament to allow him to focus on his commitments with England.

“And, on what I know, he will stay at Leicester.”
