Isco has committed himself to Madrid.
Real Madrid attacking midfielder Isco has ruled out a January move to either Arsenal or Liverpool despite barely playing at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu currently.
The 22-year-old was signed for £23.4m from Malaga in the summer of 2013 and at the time was considered one of the most promising young Spanish players in the game.
However, since then Isco has struggled to make the desired impact on the Madrid first team and the £63m signing of James Rodriguez from AS Monaco this summer has seen the Spaniard fall further down the pecking order for a place in the starting XI.
As a result the Gunners and the Reds were keeping an eye on developments and were considering a January swoop to try and bring the midfield ace to the Premier League, but the player wants to stay and fight for his place with Los Blancos.
“I want to play but I am ready to be in the team whenever the coach wants,” Isco was quoted by the Daily Express.
“I’m playing very little and hope to play more.
“Last year was amazing, winning titles, and I am very happy at Real Madrid.”
Since arriving at the Bernabeu a little over 12 months ago Isco has made 61 appearances for Los Merengues, scoring 11 goals and helping them to Copa del Rey and Champions League triumphs in 2013/14.
