Phil Jagielka has dismissed speculation suggesting he is set to join Arsenal
The Everton centre-back had reportedly been identified as a target for Arsene Wenger as the Gunners manager looks to bolster his defensive options.
Reports had suggested that Wenger was considering tabling an offer of £18 million for the ex-Sheffield United stopper, but Jagielka has revealed that he will remain at Goodison Park.
"There's nothing I can do about the speculation, but the gaffer has pulled me aside and told me I'm not going anywhere," he told talkSPORT.
"I'm happy with that. I'm an Everton player, I love playing for the club, and I'm just going to get on with my job there."
The 27-year-old made his second England start against Hungary on Wednesday, which was reward for a string of commanding performances for his club last season upon returning to action after a serious knee injury.
But Wenger will have to look elsewhere as he aims to add more experience to his backline after the departures of William Gallas, Mikael Silvestre and Sol Campbell this summer.
It is the second snub the Gunners have received in as many days, after another reported target Per Mertesacker opted to stay with Werder Bremen.
