'I said no to Arsenal but it doesn't mean I'll do that with every offer'

year ago

Jamie Vardy insists he does not regret turning down Arsenal.

The England striker snubbed a big-money move to the Emirates to stay with Leicester last summer following their title success.

Leicester progressed to the latter stages of the Champions League but struggled domestically while Arsenal went on to win the FA Cup.

But despite missing out on the chance to win more silverware, Vardy does not regret staying at the King Power.

"It was my choice to turn Arsenal down. It was just coming up with the positives and negatives, and I came up with a decision and I’m pleased with the decision I made," he told the Telegraph.

"They had qualified for the Champions League for the last 20 years or something, until last year. That was something to think about. But Leicester were also in the Champions League and on a different night at home against Atletico Madrid we could have gone even further.”

Asked about the FA Cup success, Vardy replied: "But it weren't the Premier League, was it?"

Vardy was linked with both Chelsea and Everton this summer and admits his future may not lie at Leicester.

He admits he would be intrigued by the prospect of playing in America or China and would look at any offers that come his way.

"I want to win as much as possible. I don’t want to only have one Premier League medal in my drawer at home – it would be an empty glass cabinet," Vardy added.
