Ozil plays down contract talk

Mesut Ozil is yet agree an extension to his current contract with Arsenal, but the German World Cup winner insists he is “very happy” in London.

The 27-year-old’s deal expires in 2018, and the Gunners are keen to tie up their £42.5m signing from Real Madrid on a new contract after his blistering start to the season, but Ozil says they are yet to begin talks on a new deal.

“There is no rush to sign a new contract,” Ozil told Kicker.

“My current deal runs until 2018. That is still two-and-a-half years. There are no talks at the moment.”

Ozil says he is enjoying life in London, and does not regret his move to the Premier League two years ago.

“I can only say that I am very happy in London. My decision to leave Real Madrid for Arsenal was the right one,” he continued.

“There has not been a single day, apart from whenever I was injured, that I did not feel great here.”

Arsenal are likely to offer the 2014 World Cup winner, who has made 15 assists in the Premier League this season, in excess of the £140,000 a week deal he signed when joining from the Spanish giants in 2013.
