VardyJamie Vardy has told Sky Sports he found the decision to reject Arsenal to sign a new contract with Leicester “quite easy” and believes the Premier League champions will continue their progress next season.

Vardy, 29, opted to turn down an opportunity to move to Arsenal when they triggered a release clause in his contract, and he said a major factor behind that was the spirit Leicester have fostered.

“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,” he said.

“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.”

Although Vardy has remained with Leicester, N’Golo Kante has left for Chelsea and Riyad Mahrez is linked with a transfer away.

Vardy wants his teammate to follow his lead and commit his future to the Foxes.

He said: “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.”
