Leicester says striker Jamie Vardy has agreed to extend his contract with the English Premier League champion by four years.
Arsenal activated Vardy’s release clause before the European Championship, but Leicester’s top scorer stayed silent publicly on his future.
Now it appears the 29-year-old England striker will stay at the surprise first-time English champion, although Leicester’s statement did not say the new contract had been signed.
Leicester announced on Thursday it “agreed with the representatives of Jamie Vardy to extend the England international’s contract with the Premier League champions for a further four years.”
The central England club added “both parties hope that this announcement will end recent speculation regarding Jamie’s future and confirm his long-term commitment to Leicester.”
Leicester says Vardy is focused on England duty.
