Fabianski turns down Arsenal deal
Lukasz Fabianski has rejected a new contract with Arsenal and is expected to leave the club at the end of the season, Sky Sports has reported.
Fabianski revealed that he has turned down the offer of a contract extension because he wants to move to a club where he can be first choice for club and county, rather than back up for Wojciech Szczesny.
“I want to be number one in the club and in the Polish national team,” Fabianski is quoted as saying by the Daily Star. “I have learned a lot at London during very positive and challenging periods.
“With biggest respect to this great club, I didn't accept the extension offer as I am looking forward to a new challenge in England or abroad.”
Fabianski has been at Arsenal since 2007, moving from Legia Warsaw in his native Poland. He has played 71 times in his time with the Gunners but has appeared only four times this season. The 28-year-old has never played in more than 20 games for the club, in 2010-11.
