Arsenal striker Vela wants out: I don't want to return

Arsenal striker Carlos Vela doesn't want to return to the Emirates.

Mexican striker Vela is on loan at Real Sociedad and wants to remain in Spanish football.

He said: "I don't want to return to Arsenal. I have asked my agent to negotiate with Arsenal to stay here."

Vela joined the Gunners in 2006 and has made 60 appearances - but the 22-year-old has failed to become a regular in Arsene Wenger's team.

Cash-strapped Sociedad hope to keep Vela on loan until next year before making the deal permanent.
