Leicester striker Jamie Vardy says turning down Arsenal's advances was a simple decision.

The Premier League-winning forward was the subject of a bid by the Gunners but made the decision to stay at the reigning champions, telling Sky Sports that a move was never really close.

"It wasn’t that big when I think about it. It was quite easy and this is where I want to be," Vardy told Sky Sports of his decision to stay.

He also insists that "there's a lot of unfinished business" at Leicester and feels the club are on the up.
