Jagielka not gunning for Arsenal move

12 August 2010 04:30
Everton defender Phil Jagielka has scotched rumours linking him with a move to Arsenal. The 27-year-old, who made his second England start in the 2-1 win over Hungary, has been linked with a summer move to the Gunners, who are struggling for centre-backs following the departures of Sol Campbell, William Gallas and Mikael Silvestre. A move to north London would be a step up for Jagielka given Arsene Wenger can offer the defender Champions League football this season. However, Jagielka, who signed for the Toffees from Sheffield United in 2007, denies he is seeking a move away from Goodison Park. "There's nothing I can do about the speculation but the gaffer has pulled me aside and told me I'm not going anywhere," Jagielka told talkSPORT. "I'm happy with that. I'm an Everton player, I love playing for the club and I'm just going to get on with my job there."
