The 28-year-old's current deal at Emirates Stadium runs until June 2015, but there is speculation that he could leave much sooner than that after finding himself behind Laurent Koscielny and Per Mertesacker in Arsene Wenger's pecking order.

However, Vermaelen claims that he is focused solely concentrating on helping the Gunners win the Premier League title this season.

"I don't like to talk about my situation," he told Belgian TV station Sporting Telenet. "It doesn't matter.

"I am a player of Arsenal and I will do everything for this club. We will see what happens. It makes no sense to speculate about my future.

"We are still happy about our place in the table. To be title contenders we have to be very consistent. In the Premier League, everything is possible."
