Jamie Vardy insists he has no regrets over turning down the chance to join Arsenal last summer.

Vardy was the subject of a £20million bid from the Gunners after firing Leicester to a remarkable Premier League title.

The striker considered the move but instead opted to stay at the King Power Stadium, signing improved terms with the champions.

His form has suffered this season however, and he has revealed that fans have sent death threats to both himself and his family.

Despite this, Vardy insists he does not regret turning Arsenal down.

“If I’d played like that I would have been in the same situation there, so no. No, not at all,” he said.

“The main thing was not to let it get you down. That is the worst thing – then you will just never want to go on the pitch again. So you just have to keep working hard.

“If you keep working at the things that worked well in the past there is a point where they will come around and start working for you again.

“It was hard but that has started to happen. We have started to pick the wins up and dragged ourselves away from the relegation zone.”
