Arsenal captain Thomas Vermaelen has refused to discuss his long term Arsenal future as he doesn't want to make things worse, reports The Metro.
The Gunners star has struggled for first team action so far this season as he's been behind Per Mertesacker and Laurent Koscielny in the pecking order at the Emirates.
However the defender did appear for Arsene Wenger's side as they lost 1-0 to Premier League champions Manchester United this weekend and he ha snow joined up with the Belgian national side.
And ahead of their matches with Japan and Colombia, Vermaelen has declared himself fit. When speaking to reporters, the 28-year-old said: "I have no injury, I just was a bit stiff after the game on Sunday so nothing is going on and I am fit to play.
However Vermaelen wasn't ready to discuss his long term future at club level as he continued by saying: "I don’t want to speak about the situation because if I do I make it worse, so I don’t want to speak. It is not about my situation it is about the team and they are doing well, it is not about me."
After the international break, the Gunners star will be desperate to keep his place in the side, however once again may struggle to cement a first-team place with the return of Mertesacker.
