Sevilla defender Federico Fazio has quelled rumours linking him with a move to Arsenal after signing a new deal at Sanchez Pizjuan.
It had been suggested that the Gunners could swoop for the highly-rated Argentine in the January transfer window.
However, Fazio has put pen-to-paper on fresh terms with his current club, agreeing a one-year contract extension until 2014.
The 21-year-old said in the Daily Mirror: "I've heard about the rumour and Arsenal, but I am concentrating on my career with Sevilla at the moment."
He added: "I'm very happy with this extension, which shows the confidence that they've had in me since I arrived."
