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.
As expected, it was a tough decision for Jamie to stay with the Foxes after hitting stardom in the club’s last Premier League campaign. He could have chosen a mouth-watering offer from Arsenal to make a switch, but his personal decision to remain with the champs may not be a mistake after all.
In the end, Vardy repays the faith Leicester has had in him by committing his future to the club.
What a good way to show gratitude. Jamie Vardy‘s selfless decision is indeed a big news for the Foxes but a tough blow for Arsenal, who must now start looking for better options.
