Have BBC Sport let some transfer news slip?

Jamie Vardy is already an Arsenal player, according to BBC Sport’s blog.

The British media giant may have let slip some insider knowledge regarding Vardy’s future after a slip-up during their live coverage of England’s 2-1 victory over Wales on Thursday afternoon.

Vardy has been heavily linked with a move to the Emirates Stadium as Arsene Wenger looks to provide much-maligned France international Olivier Giroud with more competition up front.

The 29-year-old came off the bench to score England’s equaliser against their neighbours and BBC Sport unwittingly – or perhaps, intentionally – described Vardy as an Arsenal player in their description of his goal.

Vardy scored 24 times in 36 games as the England international helped to inspire Leicester City to an unlikely Premier League crown last season.

Wenger currently has Giroud, Danny Welbeck, Theo Walcott and Joel Campbell as his striker options up front.
