Forget those blurry, leaked, supposed photos of the pointy striker in an Arsenal kit because Jamie Vardy has reportedly stalled in his decision on whether to leave Leicester City.

Vardy, 29, was expected to make a decision on his future Monday, but boarded England’s flight to France for Euro 2016 without any announcement. Sky Sports now says that decision will not come today.

Arsenal is reportedly offering a massive raise and will meet Leicester’s release clause, but other reports say Leicester will offer an improved deal to keep the England striker at King Power Stadium.

We wonder if Leicester is privately hoping to cash in on the near 30-year-old striker, but knows it has to offer a new deal as a message to fans, players, coaches and investors.
