The creative midfielder was linked with the gunners in the summer as a like for like replacement for Cesc Fabregas whose position in now being played by Aaron Ramsey in the squad.
Martin said on the situation:
I will not leave this winter.
I have started this season for Sochaux and I will finish the season in Sochaux. That is clear and I have discussed it with the management here. I’m not one to leave halfway through a season.
Although it is a bit of a blow, the return of much missed midfielder Jack Wilshere will be likened to new a signing at the turn of the New Year after missing all of the start of the season. Wilshere, Song and Arteta should make a formidable midfield for Arsenal. What do you guys think?
