Bacary Sagna: Will see his current contract expire at the end of the season

The French full-back will see his current deal at Emirates Stadium expire at the end of the season, casting him into the free agent pool.

He is, however, holding discussions regarding a contract extension, with Arsene Wenger claiming recently that an agreement could be reached 'in the next two weeks'.

Sagna concedes his preference would be to remain with the Gunners.

He acknowledges that there has been 'something missing' from Arsenal in recent years - following the sales of Robin van Persie and Cesc Fabregas - but is determined to play his part in helping them to get back on the trophy trail.

Sagna told Bein Sport: "I was upset, angry when players left. If we had them today, it would make a massive difference. Since 2007, a very competitive team left.

"I would love to win trophies with this club, it's a club I love so much but something is missing.

"I've still got six months on my contract with Arsenal. We are in negotiations.

"It's an option to go somewhere in January but I always had a good relationship with Arsenal.

"I've been playing there for seven years and I hope we will end up on something good. First of all I want to finish as champion because we have got a good opportunity to do it this year, and after we will see."

It's the kind of childish, uncivilised thing that Football365 would deride and ridicule if it was another media outlet saying. Why is there a need for jokes like this? Does it make your writers feel like men? F365 might suggest that I 'lighten up', but it is genuinely traumatic for people who have been oppressed all their lives to be the butt of jokes, and to be told...

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.
