Denilson: Arsenal midfielder wants to stay at Sao Paulo permanently

The 24-year-old is spending his second season on loan with Sao Paulo after initially returning to Brazil from Arsenal in 2011.

Sao Paulo expressed their optimism earlier this week that a deal could be agreed with Arsenal to sign Denilson permanently and the player is hoping to stay.

"June is close," Denilson, who has made over 150 appearances for Arsenal since joining from Sao Paulo in 2006, told UOL.

"If Sao Paulo come tomorrow and say that I'll stay, it will be an immense joy as I have always wanted to stay.

"If they leave the decision to a later point, I'll feel annoyed. I want to be calm, to solve everything so that I can work without any problems.

"I haven't had any direct talks with either Sao Paulo or Arsenal directors. I want to see out my contract with professionalism. I hope I can stay but I want them to solve this.

"June is far away, but at the same time it's so close. I want this to be done so I can focus on Sao Paulo and help my team-mates."
