William Carvalho has dealt Arsenal a blow by revealing that he will not be leaving Sporting Lisbon before Monday’s transfer deadline.

The midfielder’s future has been a source of speculation all summer, with Arsenal and Chelsea both touted as potential Premier League destinations for the player.

However, the 22-year-old now looks set to stay at Sporting Lisbon for the immediate future after confirming that he has no plans to leave the Portuguese club.

“I am under contract with Sporting and I’m a Sporting player,” Carvalho told A Bola.

“There is no way I can say I am going to leave. I am fine at Sporting.”

Carvalho, who has also been touted as a target for Manchester United this summer, scored eight goals in 29 league appearances for Sporting Lisbon last season.
