England striker and Arsenal target, Jamie Vardy has agreed a new deal with Premier League champions Leicester City.
This is according to a statement on the club website.
“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.
“There will be no further comment from either the Club or the player on this matter until the conclusion of the tournament,” the statements reads.
Vardy was the subject of a reported £20m bid from Premier League rivals Arsenal before the start of Euro 2016.
That bid activated a release clause in his contract, with the Gunners offering him a deal reported to be worth £120,000 a week.
Leicester responded with an offer said to be worth £100,000.
He is currently on duty with England at Euro 2016 in France and scored in the 2-1 win over Wales in the group stage.
Roy Hodgson’s side eventually finished second in Group B to make it through to the last 16, where they will face Iceland on Monday.
