Arsene Wenger rejects claims Danny Welbeck wants to leave


Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger says Danny Welbeck has a great future at the club and will not leave during next summer's transfer window.

The Englishman failed to secure regular first team football since Olivier Giroud recovered from an ankle injury and has been deployed out wide for the majority of his games in recent months.

But the Frenchman has rubbished reports suggesting that the player does not like to be played out of position, adding that the former Manchester United man is still an important part of his plans.

"He's very important and has played many, many games since the start of the season," Wenger explained.

"I think he's played in nearly every single game. His position is one of the three up front - central, left or right. He can play anywhere.

"He's one of the players who has played the most games for us, but not in the last couple of games. You have moments in the season where some players play a bit less.

"Most of the time it's up front because not every single player can play every game in the biggest part of the season.

"You have a player like Olivier Giroud who is playing at the moment but he missed four months. During that period Welbeck played every single game.

"He plays very well for me and is an exceptional player who will have a great future here. I am very, very happy that I bought him."
