Aliadiere: I want Arsenal stay

Aliadiere said: “I never said I wanted to leave the club.

“All I said was that I wanted to play.

“That’s my priority. I want to play football. I want to be involved every weekend but I haven’t played a lot in the last six months since I came back from my loan last season at Wolves.

“If I can’t play here, I will have to play somewhere else but Arsenal is my priority. There’s a lot of competition, a lot of great players and it’s really hard to get your place.

“But I think every time I’ve got the opportunity to play I’ve done my best and in training every day as well. That’s all I can do.”
