Arshavin confirms Arsenal stay

Arshavin reveals that that he is staying at the Emirates this season as Arsenal prepare to regroup as the transfer window closes
Arsenal midfielder Andrei Arshavin has ratified that he will not be departing the North London side as the transfer deadline edges closer.

The Russia international will be looking to get his form back on track after a dissapointing 2011/12 campaign for the Gunners that left fans frustrated and resulted in a breif return to former club Zenit Saint Petersburg on loan for the end of the campaign.

The 31-year old scored three goals on his return to the Russian side and could be a prominent feature in Arsenal's attack this weekend as they travel to Anfield to face Liverpool on September 2.
