Valencia boss Unai Emery believes that Juan Mata will be staying with the club after considering his future.

Mata has long been linked with a move to England, and Arsenal had a bid for his services turned down late last month.

The Spanish winger has not really spoken out about his future, but Valencia have maintained all along that they thought he would stay.

Now Emery has revealed his belief that Mata will shun the English interest.

"Mata has gone through a process of doubts about his future," Emery said after seeing Mata captain his side in a 2-1 victory over Hamburg.

"But now we all believe he will stay at Valencia."
