Hamburg goalkeeper Rene Adler has reaffirmed his commitment to the Bundesliga club despite continued interest from Arsenal.

The German international claimed last month he was honoured to be linked with a move to The Gunners.

But remaining committed to Hamburg, Adler is no longer thinking about a move to Arsenal, instead eager to focus on his current deal at the Imtech Arena which runs until 2017.

Adler is committed to Hamburg.

"I am under contract with Hamburg, that is a fact," Adler said.

"I can say that I have not thought about leaving or considered a transfer since I joined Hamburg."

Adler moved to Hamburg from Bayer Leverkusen after 12 years at the BayArena last summer and has sparked an upsurge in their fortunes with Thorsten Fink's side seventh with one game remaining this season.

Defeat for sixth place Eintracht Frankfurt at home to Wolfsburg and victory for Hamburg against Leverkusen would secure European football for next season, a year on from a relegation battle at the bottom of the division.

Despite being part of a Hamburg backline that has conceded 52 league goals this season and a team that looks set to fall short in their hopes of qualifying for Europe, Adler, capped just 11 times by Germany, appears set to remain in his homeland.

"For any player it is an honour [to be linked with Arsenal]," said Adler in April. "It is something that inspires me even more, and it is not distracting me."

General manager Frank Arnesen has also rejected suggestions that Arsenal have made contact over signing Adler as the north Londoners look to solve their goalkeeping dilemma.

"It's obviously a fact Arsenal FC is on the search for a goalkeeper. But thus far no-one from Arsenal FC has been in touch with our club," Arnesen told Bild.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has been forced through injury and loss of form to rotate his goalkeepers this season, with Wojciech Szczesny, Vito Mannone and Lukasz Fabianski all earning first team opportunities but the Frenchman is still to settle on a definitive figure in goal.
