Laurent Koscielny has dismissed any suggestion he could leave Arsenal in the summer.

Koscielny, 27, has been in and out of the first team at Arsenal this season, and there has been talk that he could be on his way out of the club.

However, the France international, who signed from FC Lorient in 2010, signed a long-term contract extension last July and insists he has no interest in a transfer.

"I still have four years left on my contract after June," Koscielny, currently on international duty, said. "I feel good in the club - they have faith in me.

"If every time I play less I change club, it would be ridiculous. I'm happy in London, my family too. I'm not thinking about that."
