Jamie Vardy's wife in heated Twitter row with Leicester fans over striker's proposed move

The possibility of Jamie Vardy leaving Leicester this summer arose yesterday after reports emerged that Arsenal had triggered the release clause in his contract following a bid for the striker.
Vardy's goals were instrumental in Leicester's sensational 5000/1 Premier League title triumph and with Champions League football coming to the King Power Stadium next year, manager Claudio Ranieri will undoubtedly be keen to hold onto his star striker.
So too are the Leicester fans, and it seems they are making their thoughts known to Vardy's wife Rebekah on social media.
She has sent a series of tweets responding to supporters who are angry at the thought of her husband leaving the club, something she says she has no control over.
While Leicester fans would be understandably distraught if Vardy transferred to Arsenal, it is never nice to see a player's family get abuse over someone else's decision.
