Leicester vice-chairman hopes Vardy will stay

Leicester City's vice-chairman, Aiyawatt Srivaddhanaprabha, believes Jamie Vardy will stay at the King Power Stadium, amidst rumours of an imminent transfer bid from Arsenal.

The England international netted 24 times in the league for the Foxes last season to help them clinch their first-ever Premier League title triumph.

The Gunners are believed to have triggered his release clause, though, estimated to be in the region of £20million.

However, Srivaddhanaprabha, who is the son of chairman and owner Vichai, is confident that the 29-year-old will reject the move and remain at the club, as they prepare for Champions League football next season.

"You will see the news very soon, but I think he will stay," he told The Daily Mail.

"I think so, let's see. We need to build the team. We keep continuing to believe that we can do something special in the Premier League and the Champions League.

"The Champions League is going to be amazing for Leicester, so let's see. Leicester is the underdog and we can still be the underdog."
