Jamie Vardy has told Arsenal to wait for a decision on whether he will join the club this summer as he prepares to represent England at Euro 2016.

Arsenal is reported to have activated the release clause in the Leicester City striker's contract, but Vardy has delayed making a decision on his future, according to The Times.

The 29-year-old was expected to make a decision by Monday but with England manager Roy Hodgson banning outsiders from the squad's base in Chantilly, it has now been put back.

Vardy, who was playing for Fleetwood Town in 2012, was a leading figure in Leicester's surprise Premier League title-winning campaign last season.

But interest from three-time champions Arsenal has left him torn on whether to leave the King Power stadium.

England players have been given a day off prior to matches to spend time with family, so a decision could be finalised during the European Championships in France.

Hodgson's team face Russia in the first match of Group B on Saturday.
