Leicester City midfielder Andy King says the strong team bond at the club will not be damaged should Jamie Vardy decide to join Arsenal.
Vardy left for Euro 2016 on Monday with England still considering a £20million move to Arsenal, with Premier League champions Leicester reportedly set to make him a new contract offer to keep him at the King Power Stadium.
Vardy scored 24 league goals last season as 5,000-1 outsiders Leicester won the title, and his departure would be a huge blow ahead of the club’s Champions League debut.
“I wasn’t surprised when I heard about Vards because all of our players have had brilliant seasons and are going to be linked with big clubs,” said Wales midfielder King.
“Nothing has happened yet and it will probably be a long transfer window. But I don’t think it will affect the squad.
“It is 25 players in a squad and, if one or two decide they want to go and play their football elsewhere, we wish them all the best. We want to keep our best players and hopefully add to that.”
