Bacary Sagna will be leaving Arsenal "for sure," the defender has told reporters in France.

The France international full-back's contract situation became a long-running saga during last season, with manager Arsene Wenger asked about it on a weekly basis.

The 31-year-old has yet to accept the offer put before him and now appears to have said he will not be doing so.

Sagna has been widely linked with a move to Manchester City and, although he did not commit to saying where he would be next season, it will not be Arsenal.

"It's no longer a secret, I will leave Arsenal for sure," he told L'Equipe.

"They (Arsenal) tried to make an effort, but the discussions have not gone as I wished."
