Bacary Sagna: Pleased with how he has improved since moving to Arsenal

Several Emirates Stadium stars have left over recent years and Theo Walcott is the most recent player facing an uncertain future as his contract stand-off continues.

But 2007 signing from Auxerre, Sagna, who returned from a second broken leg at the end of October, does not appear to be planning to go anywhere.

"It has been magic. Arsenal is like my family. My personal family is in France but I feel at home here. I feel happy to come training. I feel relaxed," he said in the Daily Star.

"There are not many big clubs where you feel that confident. I think I have progressed a lot. That was my target. To come to such a big club and improve.

"I was a bit nervous, because my English was very basic. I was leaving my family and friends and it was a new life.

"I used to be stressed before games but now I am totally relaxed, because of my team-mates and the manager."
