Jamie Vardy  loyalty to Leicester looks set to be tested with the news that Arsenal have reportedly made a bid for the striker.

Arsenal trigger release clause for  Jamie Vardy

Guardian reporter Stuart James tweeted that Arsenal have triggered the release clause in Vardy’s contract. Of course, that doesn’t automatically mean that the striker will depart.

Famously, Arsenal did the same with Luis Suarez in the summer of 2013, making a bid of £40m for the striker, which was his release clause, plus one pound.

Stuart James tweeted:

Understand that Arsenal have triggered the release clause in Jamie Vardy’s contract. Leicester still determined to keep hold of him.

Also SkyBet have been forced to slash their odds on Jamie Vardy joining Arsenal after a flurry of large bets backed the Leicester City hitman to make the move to North London this summer.

SkyBet confirmed on Twitter earlier today that they’ve been forced to make Arsenal the 8/13 favourites to sign the Foxes hitman after a flurry of large bets were placed backing him to make the move to North London this summer.

Manchester United are second favourites at 20/1, West Ham are at 25/1 while Manchester City are 28/1 to be the strikers next club, so as you can see we are the clear front-runners.

Vardy has just come off the back of a sensational season that saw him score 24 goals to fire Leicester to a shock Premier League title win and he’s set to play an important role for England at Euro 2016.
