Premier League: Jamie Vardy set to remain at Leicester City

Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy has decided to reject the offer from Arsenal, according to BBC Sport. The 29-year-old forward, who is currently with the England squad at Euro 2016, has not yet communicated his decision publicly but is understood to favour a new contract with the Foxes.

Arsenal had made an offer of 20 million pounds for Vardy, thus activating the release clause in his contract with Leicester City. The Gunners offered him a salary of 120,000 pounds a week, while Leicester replied with an offer worth 100,000 pounds per week. The above-mentioned source says that Arsenal are not considering making an improved offer. Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger confirmed the information in an interview with a Chinese TV station: 'Jamie Vardy is, at the moment, at Leicester and from what I know, he will stay at Leicester.'

Jamie Vardy joined Leicester from non-league outfit Fleetwood Town in 2012 for 1 million pounds. He signed a new three-year contract with the Foxes in January, and now he will add another year and a few more money to the contract. Vardy scored 24 league goals last season, leading Leicester City to a historic Premier League title.

Leicester City are 28/1 at Bet365 to win the Premier League again next season, while Arsenal are 11/2 to win the title.

    Vardy is legend in Leicester, he belongs there and I hope that he will stay in Leicester, they are playing in Champions League in new season, he is one of the best players, idol for many people and I think that Leicester have chances in new season, they can be in the top, they only need 2-3 new good players because they will have more games than last year..

    I am glad if this is true. Venger already stated that it will be very hard to convince both Vardy to come and Ranieri to let him go. I would love if Leicester didn't sell their key players and with few signings try to get to champions league next season aswell. But that will probably not be the case since many teams with higher transfer budget want Vardy, Kante and Mahrez. Kante is a key for this squad, and Real Madrid is highly interested in him.

    Obviously the money are not everything for Vardy and it's probably the right decision for him. If he goes to Arsenal that would be a completely new environment for him because he never been at such big club, there's no guarantees he would play regularly there either. While in Leicester he's one of the most important players and leaders of the team so I think it's a right decision in the end.
