Transfer Balls: Vardy keeps Arsenal and Leicester waiting for the inevitable
Transfer balls: Has Jamie Vardy told Arsenal he is joining them? The Sun said Vardy told the Gunners of his decision before 11:30am this morning, when he and the rest of the England squad jetted off to France for the Euros.
Why he needed to make his move before the flight left is moot point. surely in France there are mobile phones?
The Mail says Vardy never did make the call, declaring: “Jamie Vardy jets off to Euros while still thinking over £20m move to Arsenal as Leicester try to keep star striker.”
Is it all PR, making Vardy look torn? After all, the Mirror claims Vardy’s agent instigated talks with Arsenal. The Mail notes:
Vardy, travelling with England, is not believed to have put a time limit on when he will make a final call and any announcement may take longer than another 24 hours.
The Leicester Mercury adds:
Mercury sources have stated there is no decision imminent as the player has much to contemplate.
After all, the Mail did report:
Leicester hero Jamie Vardy commits future to Premier League champions as he looks forward to competing in Champions League
Surely he’s already made his mind up. More money in his weekly wage packet plus a huge signing-on fee and life in London with Arsenal.
