​Cazorla happy at Arsenal despite lack of new contract discussions

Santi Cazorla has said Arsenal are yet to offer him a new contract despite his current deal expiring at the end of the season.

"I hope I can stay here and continue to play," the Spanish midfielder told Cadena Ser.

"I am happy here. What a player wants is to play and to feel important. Fortunately, since I arrived at Arsenal, I've had the confidence of the coach and of my teammates.

Asked whether he had been offered an extension at the Emirates, the 31 year old said: "I don't have any news from the club in that respect. My focus now is on playing and to be able to enjoy playing football following a season when I had lots of problems."

However, Cazorla added that whilst he is getting the time on the pitch he desires he remains convinced Arsenal is the right place for him: "I'm very happy here. The club has treated me very well. I'm in a great club and I'm playing minutes which is what I want.

"If I didn't play, then I would consider leaving but that is not the case. I have this season left under contract and we will see what the club decides regarding my future. I will also decide what is best for me."
