Arsenal star rubbishes exit rumors.
Arsenal goalkeeper Bernd Leno has appeared to pledge his long-term future to Arsenal after rumors hinted he would leave the club this season.
The Gunners stopper has come under attack for his inconsistent displays in this campaign as Arsenal strain to realize their seasonal goals.
He faced competition for his place from Emi Martinez at the start of the season, but he won after Arsenal kept him and approved the Argentinean to switch to Aston Villa.
The German hasn’t looked like the right option compared to the new Villa man, but Arsenal has continued to keep faith in him.
Arsenal will sell some of their current team members in the summer and they accepted to allow David Luiz to leave them when the transfer window begins.

It seemed that Leno would follow the Brazilian into the exit door, but the German has now denied those reports after saying that he has no plans to leave the Emirates, for now.
He told Sport1: “ I don’t want to flee here, I feel good and want to be successful again with Arsenal! Arsenal are a big club, which is extremely underestimated in Germany, there are many Arsenal fans all over the world.
“I still have a two-year contract and hope to play in the Champions League again with Arsenal. It is also clear that at some point in my career I want to do something different.
” So far I’ve played for two clubs. Maybe I’ll get the urge to play in another league again. Maybe in the south. But there is time, I’m still getting to the top goalkeeping age. But my focus is on Arsenal FC.”
