Van Persie drops massive Gunners hint
Latest news update:
Arsenal striker Robin van Persie has hinted that he will extend his stay at the Emirates Stadium as he is loving life in England.
The 28-year-old joined Arsenal from Dutch outfit Feyenoord back in 2004 and, after a slow start to his career in north London, has blossomed into a superb frontman, scoring 35 Premier League goals in 2011.
His prowess in front of goal has attracted the attention of some of the biggest clubs in Europe and the talented striker has been linked with a move away from the Gunners, with only 18 months left on his contract and no talks about a new deal scheduled to take place until the end of the season.
However, the Rotterdam-born striker has now opened up about life in England and it appears that everything is rosy at present.
"We love the life in London and I enjoy watching my kids grow up here," he said. "They grow up like the English kids with good manners and values of England.
"The place where we live, just outside the city, is fantastic. We have everything we want. The English people are so incredibly polite where I live. People are nice here. That makes life a real pleasure."
Punters looking to use a free bet might feel that van Persie will pen a new deal and give the Gunners a shot in the arm to finish in the top four this term.
They are next in action against Fulham at Craven Cottage on Monday.
