Arsenal defender Gael Clichy has insisted he will not be leaving the Emirates Stadium this summer.
The French full-back, who has one year left on his contract, has been one of the names mentioned during speculation about a possible clear-out by boss Arsene Wenger at the end of the campaign.
But the 25-year-old, currently the Gunners’ longest-serving player having joined from French side Cannes in 2003, claims he is going nowhere and revealed talks are underway about a contract extension.
Clichy told The People: “When I arrived at Arsenal it was because I wanted to improve myself as a player and to win titles, and that is normal with any player.
“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. 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.
“It is unquestionable that Wenger is a great coach but the problem is it becomes more difficult to win the title every year.
“He is trying to develop the young players at this club and I think that is something you cannot put a price on in football.”
