I don’t regret turning down Arsenal – Jamie Vardy

Leicester City striker, Jamie Vardy has revealed he has no regrets turning down Arsenal but he would consider a move away from the foxes if another big offer comes his way.

Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger was willing to bring the 30 year-old England international to the Emirates last season after the striker’s  stellar performance in Leicester City’s title winning season but the former non-league striker rejected the move. On what informed his decision to turn down the Gunners, Vardy said: “It was just coming up with the positives and negatives, and I came up with a decision and I’m pleased with the decision I made.”

It was my choice to turn Arsenal down. But if another offer came in, it would be the same in that I would look at it and work out the pros and cons. But, no, turning down Arsenal doesn’t mean I wouldn’t look at another offer,” he added while speaking to the telegraph.

Vardy then went further to talk about his future and what he hopes to achieve. “I want to win as much as possible, I don’t want to only have one Premier League medal in my drawer at home – it would be an empty glass cabinet,” he said. “I want to win as much as possible. I’m contracted to Leicester and we will see how high we can go. In the future, who knows?”

Talking about trophies, Vardy was then asked about missing out on an FA Cup medal for not joining Arsenal and he said: “But it weren’t the Premier League was it? So I’m all right with that I think. I’ll never regret anything I’ve chosen to do.”

“They had qualified for the Champions League for the last 20 years or something, until last year. That was something to think about. But Leicester were also in the Champions League and on a different night at home against Atletico Madrid we could have gone even further,” he said.
