In-demand Premier League ace wants to be at Arsenal

Arsenal star Thomas Vermaelen insists he determined to keep his place in the first-team.

The Belgian has found himself confined to the bench this season due to the impressive form of centre-back duo Per Mertesacker and Laurent Koscielny, but injuries to both regular left-backs allowed the Gunners club captain some rare game-time.

Vermaelen performed well against Arjen Robben, and with Tottenham coming up at the weekend, the 28-year-old intends to continue the hard work in order to reestablish himself in Arsene Wenger’s starting XI.

‘It is not easy, but I try to stay positive,’ he said.

‘Firstly, I have been injured in the last couple of weeks, but when the boss needs me, I try to play well.

‘I know anything can happen, so I am happy to play when he needs me.

‘From my point of view, I hope it is as much as it can be. I work hard for the team and that is the only thing that I can do.’ (Metro)

The man is top class so many will be hoping he stays put
