Sporting Lisbon's Veloso shrugs off Arsenal interest

Sporting Lisbon midfielder Miguel Veloso has shrugged off interest from Arsenal.

Veloso only extended his contract last season and is now tied to Sporting until 2013, with his deal carrying a £20 million buyout clause.

Asked last night about news that Arsenal are preparing a bid for him, Veloso shrugged: "I want to go on my summer break. Then, later, I'll return to my Sporting."
