It is not exactly coming to a surprise to Arsenal fans or anyone at the club that our transfer target Jamie Vardy is not going to accept the offer of signing for Arsenal this summer, as Arsene Wenger has already suggested that he thought the striker would choose to stay at Leicester City.
However, for one am glad to see the official confirmation of this reported by the Evening Standard today. The England international forward has agreed a four year extension to his current contract and the Foxes have put the news up on their official website.
Roy Hodgson and the three lions might or mioght not be staying in France and staying in Euro 2016 for much longer but it was being reported that Vardy would not make his decision until England were out so in a way he has done us a big favour by making the rejection of our transfer offer official now.
Wenger now has a little bit more time to get the transfer of another striker sorted, although I am sure that he and his back room and scouting staff have already been working and planning for this contingency. Maybe now the Frenchman will be free to move and make a proper stab at his next striker target, whoever that may be.
Any thoughts on who it will be Gooners?
