  • Leicester City manager Claudio Ranieri is desperate to keep hold of star striker Jamie Vardy, but admits the forward will have 'the last word' on his future.

    Vardy jokes with Jack Wilshere, who could become a team-mate of his at Arsenal after Euro 2016.
    'We want to keep him,' Ranieri told Sky Italia. 'Arsenal have said they will pay the full release clause, but he hasn't accepted yet.
    'He gets the last word.'
    Vardy scored 24 goals last season as Leicester won the Premier League, with Arsenal finishing in second place behind them.
    Arsene Wenger had hoped to make him the club's second signing of the summer, after Granit Xhaka, before Euro 2016, but Vardy has decided to wait until after the tournament to make a decision.
    He was an unused substitute in England's 1-1 draw with Russia, but could be drafted in for England's game against Wales on Thursday.
