Having just won the title, the striker saw no reason to move on, and he’s shown no signs of regretting that decision three years later.
However, one person who does think it was a mistake is The Sun’s Shaun Custis, who claimed Vardy had made an error in not moving to the Emirates. This was in comments made on talkSPORT last Sunday after the Foxes had seen off Arsenal 3-0.
And reacting on Twitter to an article from the Leicester Mercury who relaid the quotes, Leicester fans appeared to be extremely puzzled by the remarks.
One fan sarcastically betted that Vardy was devastated not to have made the move. Meanwhile, another supporter made reference to how badly transfers have gone for Riyad Mahrez and Danny Drinkwater.
A further member of the King Power faithful simply called the comments nonsense.
At the age of 32, Vardy has shown no signs of aging this season, netting 18 goals. He’s now the leading scoring Englishman in the Premier League this term.
Here’s what Foxes fans have had to say.
Because all the big moves for ex city players have worked out so well…. Drinkwater, Mahrez and talksport always speak the truth…

Ask Danny Drinkwater!

Oh well, if Shaun Custis says so then it must be true! Because arsenal have been so prolific recently!

Nonsense – what exactly has he missed out on?
