Arsenal defender Thomas Vermaelen has reiterated the fact that he is not worried about his contract situation with the club, reports Sky Sports.

Vermaelen has been a legend over the years for Arsenal, however the 28-year-old's contract arrangement with the Gunners runs out in June 2015.

Rumours over his immediate future have increased during recent weeks, which have most likely been sparked because of his lack of playing time this campaign under Arsene Wenger.

It was reported that Napoli remain keen on the Belgian international, with international team-mate Dries Mertens even admitting his plan to convince the stalwart defender to make a move to Italy.

Despite all of this though, Vermaelen claims that he is not focused on himself and is concentrating on helping Wenger's side win the Premier League title this season.

"I don't like to talk about my situation," he told Belgian TV station Sporting Telenet. "It doesn't matter.

"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," carried on the loyal Belgian.

"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."

As I said before, it would probably be best for him personally to leave the club as he looks for more playing opportunity. Although only time will tell, whether Wenger will be able to rely on Vermaelen come February.

Do you think Vermaelen will still be at Arsenal come the end of the transfer window? Feel free to have your say below, I will be interested to see your opinion!
