Young Arsenal full-back Hector Bellerin has confirmed that he is not intending to leave the club anytime soon, the Daily Express reports.
The Spaniard joined The Gunners from Barcelona back in 2011 and over the past year has established himself as a first team regular (via Express).
His form since breaking into the side has been good enough to keep experienced France international Mathieu Debuchy on the bench and as such has attracted interest from the likes of Barcelona (via Express).
However, Bellerin has gone on the record to distance himself from the rumours of a return to Catalonia and has insisted that he remains fully committed to improving himself in North London.
The Express cite quotes from Spanish publication Marca, in which Bellerin said: “I came to Arsenal to stay here. I’m not thinking about going back.
“I’m happy and I’m playing. It’s my fifth season and I feel like this is my home. I see it as very difficult to leave.”
Bellerin has featured in all but three of Arsenal’s games so fat this season and has taken his tally of appearances for Arsenal to 41 in all competitions, scoring two goals.
