During the summers it`s not only stories of incoming players that grab our interest, the possibility of players leaving can also cause some worry (or in the case of Nicklas Bendtner, joy), but one player rumoured to be on his way out will not be going anywhere.

As Mikel Arteta enters the final year of his contract, it had been mooted that the 32 year old might be looking to enter his twilight years at another club.

However his agent has confirmed the LEGO-haired Spaniard is happy at Arsenal and will see out the final year of his contract.

Inaki Ibanez told El Mundo Deportivo: ‘This is totally false. Mikel has no interest in leaving Arsenal.’

‘I haven’t heard from any clubs, what are the chances of him leaving? He’s the captain of Arsenal, he is an Arsenal player and he’s happy here.

‘He also has a contract for another year.’
