Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy has signed a four-year contract extension with the Premier League champions, seemingly ending speculation about a move. Vardy, who scored 24 goals in Leicester's remarkable run to the title, had been linked with a move to Arsenal.
"Leicester City have today agreed with the representatives of Jamie Vardy to extend the England international's contract with the Premier League champions for a further four years," the club said in a statement.
Vardy is currently part of England's Euro 2016 squad and scored an equaliser in his country's 2-1 victory over Wales.
