It has been reported that Chamberlain, 18, is eyeing a loan deal in order to secure regular first-team football, having made just six starts in all competitions since joining from Southampton for £12 million in the summer.

However, the midfielder, who played 68 minutes of his side's 1-0 FA Cup win over Leeds on Monday, has stressed his commitment to the Gunners via his official Twitter account.

Chamberlain wrote: "Just to confirm, any rumours about me wanting to leave are completely false, couldn't be happier at Arsenal."
