Fresh reports have again claimed Mikel Arteta has signed up with Arsenal on a one-year deal.
The Gunners club captain agreed a new contract a number of weeks ago but stalled when officially putting pen to paper.
This, along with reports of interested parties in Spain, produced questions over whether he would remain in north London.
However, the Daily Mirror website says he has snubbed a potential move away and signed up.
The 33-year-old reported for pre-season training this week and is set to join the club on their pre-season tour of Singapore.
