Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy says it was an ‘easy’ decision to turn down a move to Premier League rivals Arsenal.
The Gunners activated Vardy’s release clause in his contract with a bid of £20m, but the England forward chose to stay with the Premier League champions.
Vardy told Sky Sports: “It’s not been put out there that I have always said the boys, the close-knit brotherhood, is unbelievable and for me, there’s a lot of unfinished business here.
“I feel that the club is only going one way and that is forward, that’s why I want to be a part of it.
“It wasn’t that big [the decision] when I think about it. It was quite easy and this is where I want to be.”
Vardy hopes midfielder Riyad Mahrez also stays at the Foxes this season, with the Gunners strongly linked with a move for the Algerian.
Mahrez and Vardy formed a lethal attacking combination as Leicester stunningly romped to the title last season.
Vardy added: “I think everyone in the squad would want him here, playing with us, but that’s nothing to do with us and it’s down to Riyad and the club to sort out.”
