Lukas Podolski has moved to dismiss rumours that he could leave Arsenal - taking to Twitter to retweet messages that suggested he wouldn't be on the move.

Podolski arrived in north London last summer and enjoyed a mixed first season, scoring 11 league goals but being substituted on or off in 31 of his 33 appearances for the Gunners in the Premier League.

Recent reports suggest Borussia Dortmund are interested in snapping up the German international.

However Podolski has taken to Twitter to seemingly put Arsenal fans at ease by retweeting positive messages about his future.

One he republished from former Swindon striker turned TV pundit Jan Aage Fjortoft read: "Reports in England about @Podolski10 to Dortmund. Can't see that one happen [sic]. Wrong signal from Wenger selling. Player seems to love London"

Another one from an Arsenal supporter said: "Can't wait to see you in the team this coming season as I know you can be even more of a sensation than u were this year!!"

Podolski was in action for Germany last night as they went down 4-3 to the USA, while he scored in his country's 4-2 win over Ecuador on Wednesday.

The German has previoulsy spoken out on his future, saying he was happy at the Emirates Stadium.

"I feel very comfortable and I am completely satisfied with my first year in England," Podolski said last month.

"I have no intention to leave the club. Rumours are rumours and I cannot stop them."
