Whether it’s excuses or an legitimate concerns, Leicester City’s players are going all out to convince Jamie Vardy to stay at Leicester City. Star defender Danny Simpson was among the latest to come up with a reason for the Premier League Player of the Season to reconsider his offer from Arsenal.
In a recent interview [per the Metro], Simpson said that he and many of the Leicester City players had spoken to Vardy personally, begging the 29-year-old scoring machine to stay at King Power Stadium.
‘I have spoken to Jamie. Everyone wants him to stay. We would like everyone to stay, even if it’s just for one more year,’ Simpson said.
Simpson also expressed his eagerness to keep the strong bonds they have together and warned that he might not have that with Arsenal.
‘It’s his decision, and he says he wants to concentrate on the European Championships. Jamie knows what I think of him as a lad and a player.
‘No money can buy the bond that we have got at the club. It’s a special group. Why not carry on and kick on as a group and squad?’
Vardy has yet to make a decision, and is expected to make the final announcement after Euro 2016.
