Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny insists that he is happy at the club and has no intention of leaving in the near future.

The Polish international has established himself as the Gunners’ number one stopper during the course of the past few Premier League seasons, after showing significant signs of improvement.

Sunderland star Simon Mignolet and Liverpool number one Pepe Reina have recently been linked with moves to the Emirates Stadium, as rumours circulate that manager Arsene Wenger is looking for a new man between the sticks.

However, Szczesny is not fazed by this and believes that he will be playing in North London for the foreseeable future.

“Ever since I signed for this club, I’ve become an Arsenal fan,” he told Arsenal Player.

“It feels like it’s more than just me playing and doing my best on a Saturday afternoon. I feel like I have a much bigger part to play at this club. It means that little bit more to me.

“I don’t think about playing for any other club. I see my future at Arsenal Football Club.”

Szczesny moved to England as a youngster to be part of Arsenal’s youth set-up.

He believes that the tough decision has paid off, and that his career with the club is in its infancy.

“I committed to coming here at the age of 16, not to then leave at the age of 24. That’s not how it works for me,” he added.

“I think coming over to England at the age of 16 was the most important decision of my life and probably the best one, to date.”

    Phew … that’s Ok. For one awful moment I thought it was about Manone or Fabianski … who are both wildly overpaid at, one gathers, £50k per week (£2.5m Per year). Can’t blame them for sitting tight on that sort of fortune – as very ordinary keepers. We should blame the fool(s) who opted for such a wage structure.
