The Leicester City fans who are competing in a pool tournament in The Transfer Tavern this evening are discussing reports that their star striker is set to be offered a new deal.
The Times is reporting that the club are in negotiations with Jamie Vardy over a new deal despite the striker only signing a new £70,000 a week deal in February.
The club are hoping Vardy will sign the new deal in a bid to ward of interest from Chelsea, who have recently been linked with a move for the England international in recent days.
Vardy’s goals and performances played a major role in the unfancied Leicester side that completed the impossible dream of becoming Premier League champions just last weekend.
Our landlord in The Tavern thinks for Leicester to progress well next season it is important that the club hold on to their key players for the rigours of defending the title.
As for the Leicester fans, they are delighted that talks are taking place and are hopeful talks with players like Kante and Mahrez will be forthcoming during the summer.
Will Leicester keep their stellar squad intact? Let us know in the comments below!
