Andrey Arshavin: Zenit loan move

Arsenal forward Andrey Arshavin will wait until after Euro 2012 before deciding where his future lies.

Arshavin joined Zenit St Petersburg on a five-month loan deal in February and has made a big impact at his hometown club, helping them to win their second consecutive Russian title at the weekend.

The 30-year-old forward is unsure whether he will return to the Gunners next season, and will instead delay discussions on his future.

"I haven't yet thought about (my future). Everything will be decided after the European Championship," Arshavin told Russian newspaper Sport Express.

"Of course, the result and quality of play there could affect my destiny."

Arshavin enjoyed two relatively successful years at Arsenal but he fell down the pecking order at the Emirates Stadium this term and was even booed while entering the pitch for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain during January's 2-1 home defeat to Manchester United.

The Russian, who cost £15million when he signed for the club in February 2009, made only eight league starts for the Gunners this season and is sure that the temporary move to his homeland was worthwhile.

"Without a doubt it was the right decision," he added.

"There are many reasons why. First of all, I am now playing, and that is paramount for any player as training is no substitute for matches. Second, I have returned to my hometown. Third, Zenit have done everything to make me feel comfortable and my thoughts are now only focused on football."
