With Arsenal fans still hoping that Jamie Vardy will make the move from Leicester City to the North London club in the summer, the Sheffield born forward appears not to share the same view with the Arsenal fans.
Vardy for the first time since the saga began has made it known to the public that the move to Arsenal is the least of his problems right now as his greatest concern is the European Tournament in France where he scored the equaliser in a 2-1 win over Wales some days ago.
Vardy is participating in his first international tournament though he is already at an advanced age of 29. The forward is a late bloomer who only joined Leicester City in the Championship a few years ago. Last season, Vardy scored an incredible 24 goals in the Premier League leading his Midland club to their first English Premier
League title in their history. This is despite the fact that Leicester were relegation favourites even though the club had a new manager in former Chelsea and AS Roma manager Claudio Ranieri who replaced Nigel Pearson last summer.
Vardy signed a new contract at Leicester last season which had a £20 million release clause inserted in it. This was triggered by Arsenal who also included a salary of £120,000-a-week for the Leicester City striker. Vardy was said to have developed a sudden cold feet and refused to make the move using the European Tournament in France as an excuse.
As if that wasn’t enough the striker had this to talkSPORT when asked how he has coped in France with the reports he is on his way to Arsenal when the tournament ends, “Its been easy.”
“I’m here to concentrate and focus on England and that’s all I’m going to be doing. Now we’ll just get back on that training field and focus on the next match.”
