Mertesacker staying put

Werder Bremen defender Per Mertesacker insists he has no intention of leaving the club amid reported interest from Arsenal.

Germany international Mertesacker, 25, has been frequently linked with a move to Emirates Stadium this summer as Arsene Wenger looks to shore up his defence ahead of the new season.

However, Mertesacker insists there has never been an approach from another club and says he has no intention of moving on.

"I'm staying at Bremen," Mertesacker told Bild. "There have been so many rumours concerning me, but I've never had to be concerned because none were concrete. I want to get back to training and enjoying football."

Werder general manager Klaus Allofs has also made clear the player will not be leaving the club, saying: "Per is staying - 100%."
