Yaya - I'm not on my way to Arsenal

Barcelona midfielder and long term Arsenal target Yaya Toure has been quick to dismiss renewed speculation regarding his mouch touted possible move to North London.The Sun claimed today toure was available due to the lack of first team opportunities at Camp Nou and that Wenger is keen on sealing a deal. However that has since been denied by the Ivorian:"I am here because I like this team and it is a great club."I will be staying here because I am delighted with the side and because we are playing some great football."Every year the club signs players of great quality and for me that is important because when a team wants to win titles and the Champions League that is what you have to do."We have a squad with some incredible players in it and I am enjoying myself here, the team is doing well and I think we can win things.""I am here to play. Things are great and the coach has faith in me and for me that is the most important thing.A lot of Arsenal fans would love to see Yaya at the Emirates as he would provide undoubted steel and physical presence to the squad, and I must admit to being one who expressed the same view during the summer, however I believe we have an all round better player in Diaby, and in Song we have a player who is slowly getting a good run of games under his belt. He had stated many times he wanted to join his brother, which doesn't look very likely now as Kolo can't even make the first team anymore - and didn't exactly dismiss talk of a move to Man City when quizzed. Give the current midfield time, they'll grow. People say Denilson and Song were awful v Chelsea - I have to say Song did his job and protected the back four brilliantly, and to me denilson was all over the pitch, fair enough he blasted a couple of half chances over the bar - but overall to me he was lively and tracked back, something you don't usually see from him. We showed steel on sunday no doubt.
