Arsenal defender Thomas Vermaelen says he's committed to the club.

The Belgian penned a new deal earlier this term.

"I have no intention of leaving this club," he told the Sunday Mirror. "I feel at home in ­London and I feel that I have become a real Gunner. Arsenal is my club. In my eyes, they belong to the absolute elite of European top clubs.

"We are going for the Champions League again and this team can grow further.

"When I was young, I dreamed of playing for Ajax and Arsenal. Both dreams have come true."
