Arsenal left back plans to stay

Arsenal’s left back Gael Clichy has put transfer speculation very much to bed by admitting his future lies at the Emirates Stadium.

Many clubs have been linked with a move for the left back including Liverpool and Everton amongst other European clubs but talking to The People, Clichy has dismissed any rumours and wishes to extend his deal in the summer.

“Wenger persuaded me to come here at a time when I was receiving offers from other clubs, and I have to say that my present and my future is with Arsenal. I am leaving talks over my contract with my agent so that I can focus on my football. I know that there are rumours about me going elsewhere but I have nothing to say about that.”

The France international added.

“I have always wanted to be at a club where I am content. Money is important but it is not a decisive factor. All I want is to win a title, that’s my ultimate ambition.”

With Arsenal also rumoured to have been looking at certain players for that position many fans will now feel that they already have the right man for the job, the task now is to persuade Arshavin to join in with the defensive duties to help his team mate.
