Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger believes that Jamie Vardy will stay at Leicester City in this transfer window. 

It has been well documented that the Gunners have triggered Vardy's £22 million release clause, but it now appears that he will snub a move to north London. 

Vardy, 29, was one of the standout players in the Premier League last season, scoring 24 league goals for Claudio Ranieri's side.

Another Leicester challenge? 

The offer from Arsenal must have been a tempting one for Vardy, but you can hardly blame him for opting to stay at the King Power stadium.
