Everton defender Phil Jagielka is not interested in moving to Arsenal.

The Mirror says in what would be a major snub for the north Londoners, Jagielka is understood to have told friends that even if the two clubs agree a deal he would prefer to stay at Goodison Park.

The 28-year-old defender joined Everton four years ago from Sheffield United for £4million and is seen as one of the most important players at the club.

He signed a new four-year contract in March this year and has made eight senior appearances for England, including three in the last 12 months.

While Arsenal would offer him the chance to play in the Champions League Jagielka has told pals he is happy being based in the north, that he is totally committed to Everton and that he is already adequately paid.
