Vela wants to stay in La Liga

Arsenal striker Carlos Vela wants to remain in La Liga with Real Sociedad rather than return to the Premier League when his loan deal expires at the end the season.

Mexico international Vela, who has struggled to make an impact at the Gunners since joining the club from Guadalajara's youth side in 2005, has scored five goals in his last six games for the Spanish side.

The 23-year-old has failed to make his mark in several other loan spell - at Salamanca, Osasuna and West Bromwich Albion - but seems to have settled in San Sebastian and is eager to stay.

Vela, who scored a brace in Saturday's 2-2 draw at Espanyol, told Diario Vasco: "In every game, whether I play well or badly, I am not thinking about what Arsenal think of me. I give all my effort for Real Sociedad.

"Afterwards I will talk with them and make a decision. The best thing is for me to enjoy every moment that is left.

"From my point of view, from a footballing and lifestyle standpoint it is better to stay in this league.

"I have a contract with an English team and if I have to return there I will adapt, but if I could stay here I would be happier."
