Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy says he rejected a move to Arsenal because he wants to be part of Leicester City's upcoming campaigns.
The Foxes will feature in the Champions League for the first time in their history after winning last season's Premier League.
The Englishman was full of praise for manager Claudio Ranieri and his team-mates as he confessed that he's already looking forward to this season.
"I had total faith in my agent and the club to sort things out, which left me free to completely focus on England and trying to help the team," Vardy is quoted as saying by the Daily Star.
"We'd have liked to have gone further in the tournament, but it wasn't to be and we'll have to make sure we learn from the experience.
"It's nice to be coming into pre-season without the distraction of any speculation.
“My future's decided - I'm a Leicester City player and I'm absolutely delighted with that.
“This club's been fantastic for me and now I've got to knuckle down again to keep helping to move it forward.
“I’m grateful to the manager, the owners, my team-mates and the fans for the support they’ve always given me.
"What we achieved last season was beyond what anyone could have imagined, but we've got to go again. There’s nothing to fear.
“We're defending the title and we've got the Champions League to look forward to, so we want to make sure we do ourselves justice.
"The next few years could be really exciting for this club.
"We all want to build on last season’s success and I’m delighted that I’ll be part of it."
