Arsenal defender Thomas Vermalen insists he is happy to stay put this summer despite falling down the pecking order in north London.
The Belgian defender found himself usurped in the Arsenal defence by Per Mertesacker and Laurent Koscielny towards the end of the season, and started just one game between March 4 and the end of the season - because of a suspension for Mertesacker.
Vermaelen was also notably dropped for Arsenal's 2nd leg last-16 Champions League tie against Bayern Munich in March.
That prompted rumours he could be on his way out of the Emirates Stadium, with Barcelona and Juventus said to be interested in securing his services this summer.
However the Arsenal defender has moved to dismiss the uncertainty surrounding his future, saying he wants to remain under the tutelage of Arsene Wenger.
"I am happy at Arsenal," he told Dutch newspaper Algemeen Dagblad. "I didn't play much which left me frustrated, but things can turn quickly.
"These are things that happen in professional football. Arsenal is a great club where there is a lot of competition."
