Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has revealed he would welcome the chance to sign an extended contract at Arsenal.
The winger has made a big impression at the Emirates Stadium since arriving from Southampton last summer.
The 19-year-old was a surprise inclusion in Roy Hodgson's England squad at Euro 2012 and, more recently, started for the Gunners in their 2-0 win at Liverpool on Sunday.
And while Oxlade-Chamberlain admits he has not had contract talks, it does not appear as though he will be becoming the latest big name to leave Arsenal in the near future.
"I haven't given that too much thought at the moment," he said, speaking at an England press conference ahead of Friday's World Cup qualifier in Moldova.
"I'm here to play for England this week so that's the only thing I'm really concentrating on.
"Obviously if Arsenal and myself wanted to sit down and talk about anything like that then that's really good because I'm loving my time at Arsenal.
"I'm really enjoying playing for them so I'm planning on being there for a while so that's good.
"The only thing I'll be focusing on when I get back is working hard and getting in the team again."
