Leicester City forward has ‘no regrets’ over failed Arsenal move

Leicester City and England strikre Jamie Vardy has said that he has “no regrets” about not joining Arsenal last summer, and is happy he stayed with the Foxes despite their poor season last year, according to the Mirror.

Vardy, who had the opportunity to join the Gunners last summer after his more-than-impressive season for Leicester, is set to spearhead the Foxes first Premier League game in two Fridays time as per the Mirror, which so happens to be against Arsene Wenger’s side.

In an interview with the Mirror about the failed move and Leicester disappointing season last year, Vardy said that he is happy that he stuck with the Foxes and that he was happy at the fact that he was able to experience the highs and lows that last season brought to the former Premier League champions.

Vardy scored 13 and assisted six in the league last year as the Foxes had the worst attempt at retaining a title in Premier League history, as the midlands side went from winning the title to finishing in a lowly 12th last year.

With Vardy set to spend another year with Craig Shakespeare’s side, it’s going to be interesting to see whether the forward can replicate the form we saw him achieve when Leicester won their first league title in 2016.
