Arsenal captain Thomas Vermaelen has once again refused to discuss his future at the club, according to Sky Sports.

The Belgian international centre-back has started only three league games this season, repeatedly failing to break the partnership between first choice starters Per Mertesacker and Laurent Koscielny.

With the World Cup fast approaching, Vermaelen will be wanting first team football on a regular basis, something that Arsene Wenger, at the moment, cannot offer him. 

Captain Vermaelen has only 18 months remaining on his current deal yet Arsene Wenger has implied he is ready to talk about a fresh deal.

But Vermaelen, speaking to Het Laatste Nieuws confirmed that he has made no long-term plans.

"It makes no sense to talk about it now.I have learned to make no long-term plans, so I won't say anything," he said. 

Vermaelen has been linked with numerous top teams including Manchester United and Napoli. But most recently, the strongest link has been with Barcelona, whose captain Carlos Puyol announced he will be leaving the club at the end of this season.
