Barcelona goalkeeper Neto will not be able to leave the club this month despite interest from Arsenal, Ronald Koeman has insisted.

The Emirates outfit are hoping to provide competition for first-choice Bernd Leno after Alex Runarsson’s struggles after his arrival from Dijon – and are believed to have made Neto a potential target.

But Koeman appears to have brought an end to the speculation already after stressing the out of favour stopper remains in his plans.
