Sort it, Vardy! Hodgson wants quick decision on England star's £20m Arsenal switch as striker weighs up Leicester's new offer

But Roy Hodgson will be more relaxed about five glamorous women on horseback, here to escort his squad to the doors of their opulent hotel, than he will the timing of Arsenal's move for the Footballer of the Year. It is an unwelcome distraction for an England manager who wants his players focused only on Saturday's opening European Championship encounter with Russia, because it is sure to be unsettling Vardy at his first major tournament.
