Mesut Özil strikes blow to Arsenal and Manchester City



Germany playmaker Mesut Özil has dealt a blow to his Premier League suitors after pledging his immediate future to Werder Bremen.

Ozil, 21, has been linked with moves to Arsenal, Manchester City and Manchester United after an impressive World Cup campaign.

But, the club's general manager, Klaus Allofs, claims Bremen would prefer to lose the player on a free transfer next summer when his current deal expires than sell him now.

And Özil says he has no intention of requesting a move this summer - but has hinted he may be tempted into a move in 2011.

He said: "Bremen want me to fulfil the contract and so I will fulfil the contract," he said.

"I have always said that I want to fulfil my contract. That is important for me. Money isn't everything."

And asked whether he could sign an extension at Bremen, he said: "It's not out of the question. We can take another look mid-season."
