Vardy: Easy to turn down Arsenal


Jamie Vardy has claimed it was 'easy' for him to turn down an approach from Arsenal and says he has 'unfinished business' with the Premier League champions.

The Gunners triggered the striker's release clause in June by bidding £20m for him but after much intense speculation, the 29-year-old instead signed an improved contract to remain at the King Power Stadium.

Vardy is also hopeful that team-mate Riyad Mahrez will stay at Leicester.

"It's not been put out there that I have always said the boys, the close-knit brotherhood, is unbelievable and for me, there's a lot of unfinished business here," he told Sky Sports.

"I feel that the club is only going one way and that is forward, that's why I want to be a part of it.

"It wasn't that big [the decision] when I think about it. It was quite easy and this is where I want to be.

"I think everyone in the squad would want him here, playing with us, but that's nothing to do with us and it's down to Riyad and the club to sort out,"
