Ozil rejects Arsenal loan departure proposal

Mesut Ozil will not consider a loan departure from Arsenal this month.

ESPN says sources claim Ozil has categorically ruled out a January loan move and is fully intent on winning back his starting position in the Arsenal team.

The midfielder missed Saturday's 5-1 away defeat at Liverpool with a knee injury.

However, he has been repeatedly dropped by manager Unai Emery for "tactical reasons" this season but remains confident that he can regain his coach's trust.

Emery has previously refused to say whether he was open to selling his star player, adding that Ozil's £300,000-a-week salary is not a factor in the decision.
