Vardy takes his Arsenal medical today as fans turn on Rebekah

More on the Jamie Vardy’s £20m move from Leicester City to Arsenal story. ESPN says Vardy will take his Arsenal medical today.

The Sunday Express says the Gunners are fearful that unless they sign Vardy before the Euros they might not sign him at all. But the Sun says Vardy’s mind was made up when he spoke with Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger.

In Italy’s La Gazzetta dello SportLeicester City manager Claudio Ranieri says he is resigned to losing his star striker to Arenal.

Sky hears Arsenal’s Olivier Giroud says he knows Vardy wants to join the Gunners.

The Sunday Times lead with news that Vardy’s wife, Rebekha Vardy, has received nasty messages on twitter. Leicester fans have accused her of instigating her husband’s transfer. She calls one fan “pathetic” and tells others to “calm yourselves down”.
Of course, those same fans can recall Vardy telling them on May 9th:

“There will be names thrown into the hat all summer, but the group of lads we have, winning the league and having Champions League football next season, you hope it keeps everyone together… I am happy here.”

Vardy’s leaving. Leicester fans must wonder who else is looking for pastures new.
