The Leicester forward has since apologised for what he called a, "regrettable error in judgement". At a press conference today, Manager Claudio Ranieri insisted that Vardy will not be sacked.

The Club has issued Vardy with a 'substantial' fine, which will be donated to local charities.

"Jamie has been reminded of his responsibilities to the Club, his profession and the Leicester community."

On his Facebook page Cambiasso said:

"I would like to announce that I have decided not to renew my contract with Leicester City. I have taken this decision only 24 hours after receiving the proposal from Leicester because I want to give the club as much time as possible to find an alternative.

"I would like to thank all the fans who last season made me feel proud to be part of a club with an unforgettable spirit and energy. And a very special thanks to all my team mates, staff and every people of the club, with whom I have lived one of the most important years of my career, crowned with the remaining EPL status. Many thanks to everyone, keeping you all forever in my heart.."
