Thomas Vermaelen has declared his love for Arsenal and hopes to spend the rest of his career at the Emirates Stadium.
The Belgian defender joined the Gunners from Ajax for £10 million in the summer of 2009 and has since gone on to make 90 appearances for the north London club.
Vermaelen has established himself as one of the finest centre-backs in the Premier League during his three year spell with Arsenal, while the 26-year-old is one of the more popular players with Gunners fans.
Arsenal supporters could be forgiven for wanting a morale boost provided the uncertainty surrounding the future of their captain Robin van Persie, and Vermaelen has given just that after committing his future to the club.
“I will stay at Arsenal forever," Vermaelen told The Mirror. "There will be no transfer for me.
“I love London. I’ve got a house there, I’m happy there and I don’t see any reason to ever leave the club.”
Van Persie, meanwhile, has still yet to agree to signing a new contract with Arsenal after an initial round of discussions with Arsene Wenger, and his future will not be resolved until after Euro 2012.
