Vermaelen currently has 18 months left on his contract and, despite not being first choice, Arsene Wenger has suggested that he is ready to talk about fresh terms.

However, Vermaelen told Het Laatste Nieuws: "It makes no sense to talk about it now.

"I have learned to make no long-term plans, so I won't say anything."

Vermaelen has been linked with a number of clubs, including Manchester United, Barcelona and Napoli, in recent months.

But his agent Kees Vos added: "We can't say anything on that matter."
