Arsene Wenger believes England striker Jamie Vardy will snub a move to Arsenal and stay at Leicester City.

In an interview with Chinese television, Arsenal boss Wenger said: "Jamie Vardy is, at the moment, at Leicester and from what I know, he will stay at Leicester."

Sky sources understand the Leicester striker has talked with Arsenal after the Gunners triggered a release clause in his contract with a £20m bid.

On Saturday, speaking at England's 2016 training base at Chantilly, Vardy insisted he was not thinking about his club future.
