Jamie Vardy has again insisted he made the right decision in turning down the chance to join Arsenal in summer 2016.

Vardy was the subject of a £20million offer from Arsenal in the months after helping Leicester win the Premier League title.

The England international agonised over the decision but eventually chose to stay at Leicester, signing a new long-term deal.

Vardy, who has stood by his decision to turn the club down again and again and again, has, well, done it again.

“It’s a decision that I came to,” he told BBC Sport of rejecting Arsenal. “I thought about all the positives and negatives. I made my decision and stuck by my decision and I’m still here.

“You always say that [you want to stay] but the manager might get fed up with me and say ‘on your bike’ so we’ll have to wait and see.”
