Diarra hints at quickfire Arsenal exit

Lassana Diarra is ready to quit Arsenal, according to reports in France.

The 22-year-old midfielder joined the Gunners from Chelsea at the end of August and could be set to face his former club at Emirates Stadium this afternoon.

Diarra has started the last four Premier League games, and also featured during the midweek Champions League win over Steaua Bucharest.

However, with the likes of Cesc Fabregas, Gilberto, Mathieu Flamini and Denilson all vying for a place in the side, Diarra believes he is just not getting enough football.

Diarra, a regular with the French national side, told Sunday's edition of L'Equipe: 'We're halfway through December, and I've decided: I want to leave Arsenal. The bottom line is the coach doesn't need me.

'They don't want me. I don't understand, because I've got more value in the French national team.'

Diarra added: 'When I signed for Arsenal I was made promises by the people who recruited me.

'But since the start of the season the only matches I've been involved in have been low-key, and to be honest I'm getting fed up with it.

'With Mr Wenger, there's no problem whatsoever. I'm not going to criticise him or speak badly of him. I'm not the kind of person who creates problems.

'But I signed for Arsenal because I was led to believe I was going to be playing, and there would be healthy competition for the spot. That hasn't been the case.'
