Arsenal were heavily linked with a move for Leicester City’s striker Jamie Vardy and reports claims the Gunners triggered his 20million pounds release clause but he later snubbed a move to the Emirates stadium due to personal attachment to the King Power Stadium.
Vardy guided the Fox in winning the Premier League last season scoring 24 goals in total and providing 5 assist.
“I was in a hotel room for the Euros – you do get a lot of free time – and that time was spent thinking about every single aspect [of Arsenal’s offer], the pros and cons,” Vardy toldtalkSPORT.
“It all came down to my head and my heart both saying ‘stay’, because I personally think there’s a lot more to come from Leicester and I want to be a part of that.”
Vardy has since gone on to start in every Premier League game for Leicester this term scoring two goals.
