Arsenal links will not distract me – Vardy

Jamie Vardy will not worry about speculation linking him to Arsenal while on Euro 2016 duty with England and has not discussed the matter with national team boss Roy Hodgson.

Vardy's 24 Premier League goals last season sensationally fired Leicester City to a shock title triumph and prompted an offer from Arsenal, which has reportedly triggered a release clause in his contract at the King Power Stadium - understood to be in the region of £20million.

The 29-year-old's stock continued to rise this week, as he came off the bench at half-time to equalise in England's 2-1 Group B win over Wales in Lens.

Asked if he had anything to offer with regards to the Arsenal links, Vardy told Saturday's news conference at England's Chantilly training base: "Nothing at all.

"I'm just here completely focusing on England and that's all I want to do at the moment."

Hodgson may have been prompted to take Vardy aside and focus his state of mind during England's time in France, but the player himself insists such steps have not been needed.

"There was nothing like that at all, no one-on-one chat or anything," he said. "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."
