Frenchman speaks out about contract situation.
Arsenal defender Bacary Sagna has admitted that he expects to leave the Gunners at the end of the season.
The 31-year-old has just over a month left to run on his current contract at the Emirates Stadium and, despite lengthy talks, the two parties have been unable to thrash out a new deal.
Sagna started Arsenal’s final-day Premier League match at Norwich City on Sunday.
Next weekend’s FA Cup final against Hull City at Wembley Stadium is likely to be his last appearance in a Gunners shirt.
He told France Football: “I’m out of contract, as everyone knows. I still consider myself as an Arsenal player at present.
“But actually we had a small problem to agree, and I don’t think I stay at Arsenal at the end of the season.”
Sagna joined Arsenal from Auxerre in a £6m switch in July 2007.
He has made 213 league appearances for the Gunners, as well as featuring in 72 games in other competitions for the North London side.
Although Sagna has not yet won any major titles with Arsenal, he has twice been named in the PFA Premier League Team of the Year – in 2008 and 2011.
