"The truth is I love this club and I have made up my mind to stay.I can say to all my fans and the people who care about me, I want to lead the team out in the new stadium (next season). I'll talk to (manager) Arsene Wenger, to (vice-chairman) David Dein and the board and talk of the future.
"My mind is to stay and we have to sort this out."
"There was a lot of ridiculous speculation, but the truth is this, I never spoke with or met with a single person from any other club at any time.
"This will put an end to all the stories. We can move on."
Well done Thierry!
