Arsenal forward Gervinho has rubbished speculation that he could leave the club, saying: "I have a contract until 2015 with Arsenal and I intend to honour it."

Reports had suggested the Ivory Coast international, who joined the North Londoners in 2011, could rejoin his former club Lille or move to Turkish outfit Fenerbahce.

"There is always speculation in the papers, but I am looking forward to a good holiday and then to come back to Arsenal," Gervinho said.

"I want to win my place in the starting line-up week in, week out."
