Mesut Ozil has revealed his intention to see out his lucrative Arsenal contract after a resurgence under Mikel Arteta.
The German midfielder had looked set to leave the Emirates prior to the Spaniard’s arrival, having been frozen out by previous boss Unai Emery.
That had led to Ozil being linked with a move to a number of clubs over the last two windows, and even in December last year there was still talk of a loan move to Fenerbahce being close.

The Gunners are currently sat 10th in the table, six points behind Manchester United in fifth, and 11 points behind the final Champions League spot, currently occupied by Chelsea.
