Bukayo Saka says he is enjoying his time at Arsenal but is no hurry to extend his stay at the club.

Despite admitting that he has taken a liking to manager Mikel Arteta, Arsenal’s makeshift fullback Bukayo Saka is still hesitant to commit his future to the club.

Bukayo Saka broke into the Arsenal first-team earlier this season after rising through the ranks of the club’s youth system.

The 18-year old has impressed with his performances and, although being a winger, has well adjusted to his defensive role in the absence of Kieran Tierney and Sead Kolasinac.

Saka is tied to Arsenal until the end of the next season. And, with the teenager attracting much interest from a couple of Premier League clubs, the Gunners might want to pin him down by offering him a new contract.

But Saka has not given much thought about a long term stay at the Emirates.

“I just leave all that stuff to my agent and my parents,” Saka told the Athletic.

“I just enjoy my football and play my football. Do I want to stay? Like I said it’s for my agent. They’re sorting it out. Of course, I’m enjoying my football, enjoying playing under the new coach. So we’ll see what happens.’
