Jamie Vardy to Arsenal in doubt as Arsene Wenger says Leicester striker is set to stay.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has admitted he England striker Jamie Vardy is set to snub a move to the club and remain at Leicester.
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.' 
The Premier League-winning striker's future has been the subject of intense speculation after the Gunners met his £20million release clause earlier this month.

The 29-year-old refused to make a decision on his future before travelling to Euro 2016, preferring to settle matters after the summer showpiece and concentrate on his commitments with England. 
Leicester have grown increasingly confident that Vardy, who finished with 24 goals last season as the club defied all expectations to win the title, will stay put. 
When quizzed about his future on Saturday the Foxes forward replied: 'No, nothing at all. I'm just here focused on England and that's all I want to do.'
'That's how I want to be and how I want to stay focused. We're here to represent England and that's all I want to think about.'
Vardy has so far acted as an impact substitute for England but his equalising goal against Wales may have gone some way to persuade Roy Hodgson to give him a chance from the first whistle. 
The Three Lions face Slovakia in their final Euro 2016 group game in Saint-Etienne on Monday knowing a win will see them finish top of Group B.
