Leicester have announced that they have agreed a new deal with Jamie Vardy, which will see the striker stay another four years at the Premier League champions.
A statement on their website reads:
Leicester City have today (Thursday) agreed with the representatives of Jamie Vardy to extend the England international’s contract with the Premier League champions for a further four years.
Both parties hope that this announcement will end recent speculation regarding Jamie’s future and confirm his long term commitment to Leicester City Football Club.
Jamie will continue to focus all of his efforts on trying to achieve success with the England team at the European Championships in France.
There will be no further comment from either the club or the player on this matter until the conclusion of the tournament.
Of course agreeing a deal and signing a deal are not quite the same thing, so it seems like Vardy still has a decision to make.
However, given Leicester’s statement you’d have to say chances are he’ll stay with them. It means Arsenal will most likely have to look elsewhere to boost their striking options ahead of the new season.
