Press conference

Arteta - Xhaka is going to stay at Arsenal

Mikel Arteta says that Granit Xhaka's future lies at Arsenal.

Our former captain has been linked with a January move to the Bundesliga, but he was back in our starting line-up for the 2-0 win over Manchester United.

Xhaka was outstanding in midfield and our head coach says he will stay.

"Yes, he did [give me that reassurance]," said Arteta.

"I think he is going to stay. He was very good [against United], and I really like him. With the way we want to play, if we get him on board I think he can be a tremendous player for the football club.

"I like everything about him. His commitment, I like the way he is, the way he lifts his profession, how focused he is. Every time I am talking, he is listening and is willing to learn.

"He is a great football player. The way we want to play, there are not many with his quality on the ball, his range of pass, so I am delighted to have him."
