Arsenal star Mesut Ozil has confirmed he will remain at the Emirate Stadium despite failing to sign a contract extension with the Gunners.
The German international has just 11 months left on his current contract at Arsenal with reports linking him away from the Emirate Stadium.
The World Cup winner has been stalling on contract negotiations over the past year, but he is prepared to sit and discuss terms following the club’s pre-season tour of Australia and China.
Ozil insisted that his preference is to stay at Arsenal, and he will seek to sort out his future once the team return to north London later this month.
“It is definitely my preference to stay,” he is quoted on Arsenal’s website. “Once everyone is back in London, we will sit down and discuss the future. I have always said that I feel very good at Arsenal.”
