"That is what I have got to do. I have got to take it on board, try to get into the Arsenal first team and hopefully I'll be selected. I have just come back to full fitness. I am happy with where I am, playing-wise. I am trying to get into the Premier League team.
"At the moment I am concentrating on the now. The future will take care of itself. All I have got to do is stay fit and play my football. I want to stay at this club, I have said that many times. I've got a great relationship with Arsene Wenger and he's assured me that I will get some playing time."
