Martin signs new Sochaux deal

Highly-rated Sochaux midfielder Marvin Martin has signed a one-year extension to his current contract but he could leave the club next summer.

Martin, 23, has signed on until 2015 at the Stade Auguste Bonal after he starred in Ligue 1 this season and gained international recognition with France.

However, the midfielder was linked to Arsenal this summer and he revealed: "We had good a talk and we found an agreement. The officials made a promise. Indeed, an agreement to let me leave. I will remain at Sochaux until the end of the season."

A statement on the club's official website read: "Marvin Martin has signed a one-year contract extension with Sochaux on Monday afternoon. He is now under contract until 2015.

''Sochaux would like to use this opportunity to thank Marvin Martin for his professionalism and positive attitude. His debut in France's national team has made him a successful ambassador of this club and their training centre."

Olympique Lyonnais have also shown an interest in Martin, but the player is believed to favour a move to the Emirates if the club pay his new buy-out clause.
