Real Sociedad midfielder Fran Merida admits he won't consider a return to Arsenal until the end of the season.

Merida is currently on-loan at Real and said: "I haven't spoken directly with Arsene Wenger, but with someone who is close to him. They've told me to keep working as I am.

"I can't think about returning to London, because then your head becomes a mess. We'll see what happens later. I just want to do well with Real."
