Mikel Arteta responds to John Stones speculation

Mikel Arteta has shut down all rumours claiming he is interested in bringing Manchester City defender John Stones to Arsenal. The Gunners are looking to strengthen their defensive unit in the January transfer window as they fear a series of injuries to their defenders have deterred their challenge for a top-four place in the Premier League.
Stones was reported to be one of Arsenal's primary targets this winter but Arteta was quick to dismiss the speculation. When asked about the defender, the Spaniard said, "John is a player that I really like and I followed. We signed him when I was at Manchester City and I worked with him for many years and know him well. When I look at centre-backs, he has many attributes that I like from one, but we’re not interested."

According to Christian Falk of Sport Bild, the Bavarians have informed the German international that he is not allowed to leave this month as their squad is already lacking options on the defensive front.
