Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger says he expects Jamie Vardy to reject the Gunners and stay at Leicester City.
Wenger made this comment after Leicester owner Aiyawatt Srivaddhanaprabha insisted Vardy will stay with the Premier League champions, but the player himself refused to disclose any details about his future.
When asked about a potential move at a news conference ahead of England’s Monday Euro 2016 fixture with Slovakia, Vardy refused to say if he’d stay or leave.
However, when Wenger was asked about bringing Vardy to Arsenal, the Frenchman told desports: “No, no. Jamie Vardy is at the moment at Leicester, and on what I know he will stay at Leicester.”
The Gunners activated a £22 million release clause in the 29-year-old’s contract but Vardy chose to suspend a decision until after Euro 2016, choosing to focus on England before deciding his future at club level.
He has started both of England’s Group B games as a substitute but scored in the 2-1 win against Wales after coming on at half-time.
