Reported Liverpool and Arsenal target Keisuke Honda will remain with CSKA Moscow for the duration of his current contract.

The future of the Japanese playmaker has been the subject of frequent speculation over the last few months, but Honda's agent has revealed his client will stay in Moscow for the next 18 months.

Kees Ploegsma said: "The player has received several offers that he has liked, but after a meeting with the club Keisuke has preferred to stay in Moscow until the end of his contract."

Honda has built up quite a reputation thanks to his swashbuckling displays for Japan at the World Cup; some of which led Arsene Wenger to label him a 'genius'.

"This Japansese team is based on a solid and collective defence in which everybody knows exactly what to do," the Arsenal boss told Eurosport.

"When they get the ball they can give it to Honda - and the magic starts.

"When they get that genius Honda playing up front, he has shown what a top class player he is. For me he's the best performer of the competition so far."

Since then, Arsenal and Liverpool have both consistently been linked with the 24-year-old with both clubs reported to have a genuine interest.


It was previously alleged that Honda was open to a move to Liverpool as the Anfield club ramped up their search for attacking reinforcements in January, although it is unclear whether talks over a proposed deal actually took place., however, did suggest that Liverpool had made an enquiry over the potential availability of the attacker but were rebuffed in their attempts by CSKA.
