Two of the prominent figures in this January’s transfer rumour mill have each declared they intend to remain at their current clubs until at least the summer.

Both Mario Götze of Bundesliga champions Borussia Dortmund and Arsenal target Jan Vertonghen have poured cold water over the increasing speculation concerning possible imminent high-profile moves by declaring their intent on remaining in Germany and Holland respectively.

Götze is an absolute superstar in the making and has been attracting lustful interest from Manchester United and Real Madrid, especially since his club’s dire Champion’s League showing. This week however he told German daily Bild “I have always said how at home I feel here. And nothing has happened to change that. I have my family and friends here. And the whole Borussia Dortmund package with the coach and the team is simply outstanding.”

The 19-year old maestro is still expected to move on next summer when a multi-million pound bidding war will ensue between several of Europe’s top clubs.

Ajax skipper Vertonghen meanwhile has deflected the attentions of long-time admirer Arsene Wenger once again by stating that it is extremely unlikely he will move on until the end of this campaign at the earliest. With his current contract set to expire in 2013 the Amsterdam outfit will be keen to either tie down their inspirational leader or cash in on the hot property but his words will – for now – be a huge relief for a club embroiled in a fierce battle for a Champion’s League spot in the Eredivisie.
