Oh dear. An exclusive report claims that Jamie Vardy is leaning towards rejecting a move to Arsenal in order to stay at Leicester City.
The Evening Standard’s James Olley claims that sources in the England camp have leaked the news, with Vardy telling his international teammates that he ’80 per cent’ likely to stay.
Arsenal have met Vardy’s release clause and offered him £120,000 a week in wages, with the striker expected to accept the offer. However, in the last few days the worm seems to have turned.
Instead, the Standard claim that Vardy will sign a new contract at Leicester, worth around £100,000 a week. He is understood to have doubts about the opportunity for first-team football once Danny Welbeck returns to fitness.
Can’t see Arsenal fans reacting badly to this news. Dear me.
