Arsenal defender Thomas Vermaelen says his reason behind signing a new deal with the club was down to wanting to give something back to the supporters.

The Belgian signed a new deal long-term deal with the club in the summer, after missing eight months of the previous season with an Achillies injury.

After a brief spell on the sidelines this season with an ankle surgery, the 26-year-old has quickly found his best form.

“I thought about it really long and of course I knew there were some doubts about my club,” he said.

“For me the most important thing is that I feel happy at the Club.

“Another thing is that I have only really played one year because I was injured last year and I wanted to give something back to the fans.

“I felt like for me I was not done here. I still believe in the Club, I think the structure is really good and these are the main reasons why I stayed.

“I think people think that if things are going difficult it is going to be better at another club.

“For me if it's not going as you wanted at the beginning it doesn't mean you have to quit. It's always easy to quit and go somewhere else. I feel there is some belief in this team.”
