Nacho Monreal: I am happy at Arsenal and want to extend my contract

Arsenal left-back Nacho Monreal says he is committed to the club and wants to stay, amid speculation that he could return to Spain with Athletic Bilbao.

Monreal, 29, has cemented his spot in the first-team ahead of Kieran Gibbs this season and started as the Gunners beat Aston Villa 4-0 at Wembley to win the FA Cup.

The Spaniard, who arrived from Malaga for around £8 million in 2013, is enjoying life at the Emirates and, although he only has one year left on the contract, is keen to secure his future.

"I have one more year on my contract and I would like to stay at Arsenal," he told Sport360 at Arsenal Soccer School Dubai. "I am very lucky to play for Arsenal, and am very happy to play for Arsenal

"If the boss [Arsene Wenger] wants me to stay, I will do... I only have one more year left on my contract but I am in contact with the club. My main intention is to stay at Arsenal and I hope I can extend my contract."
