Danny Welbeck will not be leaving Arsenal to secure a move to a foreign club, Unai Emery has confirmed.
The summer transfer window slammed shut on Thursday night for Premier League clubs, but teams from abroad are still able to complete the acquisitions of players from English sides should they choose to sell.
Welbeck was one of several Arsenal players who had been touted for an exit from the Emirates this summer, with the likes of Southampton, Everton and Bournemouth having been linked with respective swoops.
However, no move eventually came to fruition, meaning that Welbeck will be playing his football in North London, instead of elsewhere in the Premier League.
Nevertheless, a move to another club in Europe had remained a genuine possibility for Welbeck, whose first-team chances at Arsenal look slim next season.
Arsenal boss Emery has refuted claims that Welbeck will leave, though, insisting that he is going nowhere between now and the end of August.
As quoted by BBC Sport, the Spaniard delivered an update on some members of the Arsenal squad’s future, earmarking them for exits before the European window closes.
Welbeck, though, was not one of the mentioned names, with his future likely to be with the Gunners for the foreseeable future.
We only have three players – Carl Jenkinson, David Ospina and Joel Campbell, with the possibility to leave.
