Leicester expect to keep Vardy

Premier League champions Leicester City expect star striker Jamie Vardy to turn down a £20m move to Arsenal.

Foxes' vice-chairman Aiyawatt Srivaddhanaprabha says Vardy, who is on Euro 2016 duty with his country and scored England's equaliser from the substitutes' bench in Thursday's 2-1 win over Wales in Lens, is likely to stay at the King Power Stadium for nest season's historic Champions League campaign.

"You will see the news very soon, but I think he will stay," Srivaddhanaprabha told the Daily Mail

"I think so, let's see. We need to build the team. We keep continuing to believe that we can do something special in the Premier League and the Champions League.

"The Champions League is going to be amazing for Leicester. Leicester is the underdog and we can still be the underdog."

Vardy says he is totally focused on England and will not think about his club future until after the tournament.

"It's been easy (to shut that out)," he said, when asked about a possible move to the Emirates.

"I'm here to concentrate and focus on England and that's all I'm going to be doing and now we'll just get back on that training field and focus on the next match.

Srivaddhanaprabha says he enjoys a good relationship with manager Claudio Ranieri, and that his family are enjoying the experience of being owners of a Premier League winning side.

"We talk a lot. We are like family," Srivaddhanaprabha said of the Italian.

"I cannot compare myself to another owner but the best thing is we love sport. The first day we talked to the team and we showed that we are doing something we love and that we can succeed.

"I think everyone in Leicester is still pinching themselves. Even the players and staff. Now the season is finished and we have to move on."
