You know when you’re a teenager and fall so head over heels in love that you tell everyone who’ll listen that you’ve found your soul mate and plan to spend the rest of your life together…and then two weeks later go out with their best mate?
Thomas Vermaelen has declared he’ll spend the rest of his career at Arsenal and stressed that he has no reason to leave the Emirates.
While all around him get linked with moves away from the club, the Belgian enforcer, who signed a long-term extension to his contract in October last year, insists his head is not for turning.
“There will be no transfer for me,” he continued as small cartoon hearts appeared in his eyes.
“I love London. I’ve got a house there, I’m happy there and I don’t see any reason to ever leave the club.”
While every Arsenal fan hopes that Thomas means what he says, we’ve had our collective heart broken so many times in the past that we’d be wise to take what he says with a pinch of salt.
Right, time for a bath and a glass of rose.
