Newcastle's Martins rejects Arsenal, Man Utd

Newcastle United striker Obafemi Martins has rejected a £15 million move to Arsenal.

The Sun says Gunners boss Arsene Wenger suffered another blow when Toon's in-demand striker played down interest from the Londoners - insisting he is happy on Tyneside.

Manchester United and AC Milan are also willing to spend big on the speedy 23-year-old, who has more than two years left on his £60,000-a-week deal.

Martins' advisor Chris Nathaniel said: "Several top clubs have made contact but Obafemi hasn't indicated an interest in any of them and he has no intention of quitting the club."
