Poland international Wojciech Szczesny insists he has no plans to leave Arsenal even though he has found his first-team opportunities restricted this season.
The 25-year-old has not featured in a Premier League game for the Gunners since the New Year’s Day defeat to Southampton but did help Arsene Wenger’s side beat Aston Villa 4-0 in Saturday’s FA Cup final at Wembley.
Wenger has opted to start with David Ospina in goal in the Premier League in the second half of the season, while Chelsea shot-stopper Petr Cech is being linked with a summer transfer to Arsenal.
The media like to speculate, but I am happy where I am.
However, Szczesny, who has spent the last seven seasons in north London, starting 132 Premier League games for the club, said: “I am very grateful for the manager.
“He has been good with me over these last couple of months and has shown all the faith in the world in me and I am very thankful for the chance to play in the cup final and am very glad of a clean sheet.
“The media like to speculate, but I am happy where I am. I have got all the support in the world from the manager and I have fantastic relations with him, so you can stop the gossip now because I am here for good. I will stay.”
Arsenal are 5.50 to win the Premier League title outright in 2015/16 and 1.16 to finish in the top four.
