Injury-Prone Midfielder Says He Is Not Leaving Arsenal.

Despite reported interest from Manchester City, Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere says he wants to remain at the Emirates Stadium.

To fulfil their home-grown quota after losing James Milner and Frank Lampard to Liverpool and New York City respectively, the Premier League runners-up are aiming to sign British players and that is why they have put Wilshere on their shortlist.

Responding to the speculations linking him with a move to the Etihad, the English international said that he is comfortable at Arsenal and is not planning to leave.

"I wouldn't go somewhere just because I'm a home-grown player," said England international Wilshere, 23.

"I'd want to be wanted by a club; I want to be wanted by Arsenal."

"I've grown up at Arsenal. As long as Arsenal want me, I'm happy," added Wilshere.

Wilshere started only nine Premier League games for the Gunners last season due to his ever-recurring ankle injury which ruled him out for six months.

The Arsenal youth academy product's classy displays after making a return made everyone sing his praise. His wonder volley goal in Arsenal's last league game of the season which was against Westbromwich Albion is one which will be for long be remembered by many football lovers. That goal was adjudged the Best Goal of the Season in an online poll organised by the BBC.
