Real Madrid midfielder Sami Khedira has dismissed the possibility of a January move to Arsenal or Manchester United and is happy to remain in the Spanish capital.

Khedira, 27, was heavily linked with a move to the Premier League this summer following the arrival of Toni Kroos at the Santiago Bernabeu.

The German international is also in the final year of his current deal at Real, with no indication of further talks over a new contract.

Although Khedira is understood to have no shortage of suitors in the Premier League, with German champions Bayern Munich also credited with interest, he insists he sees no reason to leave the club before his deal ends.

"There have not been talks with any other teams," Khedira told Kicker. "I have never even considered leaving. And that has not changed as of yet.

"Real Madrid are a great team. There is not really a reason for me to say that I want to leave or have to leave."

Khedira, who missed most of last season after suffering a cruciate ligament injury, has struggled to break into Carlo Ancelotti's first team this season.

The World Cup winner has made just four appearances off the bench and although the Italian coach believes the player is intent on staying, he recently hinted the club may have other plans.

"There are indications that he might leave, but I think he wants to stay here," Ancelotti told Primer Toque.

Khedira has been relentlessly linked with a move to join his countryman Mesut Ozil, Per Mertesacker and Lukas Podolski at Arsenal as his struggles to nail down a first-team role in Madrid.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has seen his decisions during the summer transfer window again come under scrutiny after the club failed to secure a holding midfielder and a centre-back, but is likely to attempt to address that in the January window.
