Gilberto Silva commits to Arsenal

Gilberto Silva has ruled out leaving Arsenal in January.

The consistent form of Cesc Fabregas and Mathieu Flamini in central midfield has restricted the Brazilian's opportunities.

However, despite reported interest from the likes of Juventus and Valencia, the South American remains determined to stay.

"This is what I have in mind, to get back in the team and hope I can achieve that as soon as possible," said Gilberto, who has more than a year left on his contract.

"But I know the team is playing well and so are the guys in my position, especially Mathieu.

"I will do my job, and I did that again against Tottenham which was another good opportunity for me to show that I am capable to come back into the team.

"At the moment, I prefer not to think about moving and to fight for my position."
