Olivier Giroud insists he has no plans to leave Arsenal in January

Ashley Williams vows to continue leading Wales after dismissing retirement talk Olivier Giroud says he has no regrets about decision to stay at Arsenal after scoring again for France

OLIVIER GIROUD plans to stick to his guns and stay with Arsenal beyond the January transfer window despite being a Premier League sub.

The French Football Federation have already revealed Giroud, whose strike against the Welsh took his global tally to 29, will play no part in Tuesday's friendly against Germany.

'For the moment I am not questioning myself about my future.

"I have a lot of objectives with Arsenal and my country so I always try to move forward and keep scoring".

Aaron Ramsey insists Wales' promising youngsters have offered a positive glimpse into the future, despite a 2-0 friendly defeat to France.

No. of Indian students in US increases by 12.3 %
The top host states were California, New York, Texas, Massachusetts, Illinois, Pennsylvania, Florida, Ohio, Michigan, and Indiana. The list has been topped by China with 350,755 students followed by India with 186,267 students.

"They're a great team with so many options so it was a tough task for us tonight", Arsenal midfielder Ramsey told BBC Sport . I am thinking that the story between the club and myself is not over and not finished. I don't want to stop there.

Giroud's goal against Wales also brought him to within a goal of his hero Jean-Pierre Papin in fifth place on France's all-time list on 29.

Playing back-up to the likes of Alexandre Lacazette and Alexis Sanchez, Giroud has only scored three goals in 17 games for the Gunners this term.

While Giroud has struggled for first team minutes so far this season, the Frenchman remains a proven Premier League goalscorer and his absence will reduce the attacking options available to manager Arsene Wenger. That's more important for me. I keep believing in my quality and I keep the faith.

"It's always a pleasure to play for the national team and I think we played a good game".
