After being named club captain William Gallas has pledged his future to Arsenal.

The French defender had been linked with Real Madrid and Juventus at the end of last season, but today wrote on his personal website: "I never have questioned my future, but wondered about Arsenal's, it is different.

"I always have wanted to remain at Arsenal, but I would like to win titles and it is for that reason I questioned the club.

"The time for such questions is over. My future, is Arsenal."
