In the past 24 hours or so, transfer rumors surrounding Jamie Vardy have gone from a standstill to ludicrous speed. Arsenal have allegedly triggered the striker's release clause, and Leicester City manager Claudio Ranieri has confirmed Arsenal's interest in the player. If this new report is true, though, it's possible that we could hit plaid in just a moment.

Nursey is a reporter for the Daily Mirror based in the Midlands (again, that is where Leicester is, for those of you who like me are not experts in English political geography), so while he's not typically on our radar, it's not outside the realm of possibility that he'd have the sources to know what's going on here. On the other hand, since he's not a known quantity, it's hard to say with any certainty whether or not he's bonafide.
So for the moment, take this with a grain of salt, but we should know something more in the next couple of days.
