Arsenal star calm over contract talks

Arsenal defender Thomas Vermaelen is not panicking about his future whether it is long term or sort term, as reported by Sky Sports.

The Belgian defender is not first choice at The Emirates any more but is attempting to make the most of his recent chance given the injury to Laurent Koscielny.

Vermaelen has been linked with a move away from North London in January with his place in Belgium’s World Cup side very much still to play for.

The tough tackling central defender has just 18 months remaining on his current deal with Arsenal too and contract talks are yet to begin leaving a player on the bench who wants first team football.

“I don’t like to talk about my situation, it doesn’t matter,” he told Belgian TV station Sporting Telenet.

“I am a player of Arsenal and I will do everything for this club. We will see what happens. It makes no sense to speculate about my future.

“We are still happy about our place in the table. To be title contenders we have to be very consistent. In the Premier League, everything is possible.”
