Under-fire centre-back William Gallas is not looking to leave Arsenal, the Frenchman's agent confirmed on Tuesday.

Gallas has been stripped of the Arsenal captaincy after publicly making critical remarks about the team and questioning their fighting spirit and has since been linked with a move away from north London, with Paris St Germain one possible destination.

"William doesn't express himself and the English media take advantage of that," his agent Etienne Mendy told French paper Aujourd'hui Sport. "They haven't missed a chance to do that ever since his bad-mood gesture last year at Birmingham, and they envisage him leaving Arsenal. That is wrong."

Gallas, 31, was dropped from Arsenal's matchday squad for last Saturday's 3-0 defeat to Manchester City but will be recalled to the starting XI for Tuesday night's Champions League match against Dynamo Kiev.

And Mendy predicted Gallas will come back better then ever.

"He has taken the criticism and has already moved on," Mendy added.

"Anyway, William is never better than when he has his back to the wall."
