Sagna speaks out over Arsenal transfer policy

Bacary Sagna has spoken out against Arsenal's transfer campaign this summer, which saw two star players, Robin van Persie and Alex Song, leave the club.

Sagna, 29, has been an integral part of the Arsenal side every season since signing for the club from Auxerre in 2007. In that time, the French international has played 147 games.

But the 32 times capped right-back says he shares the supporters' confusion over the sales of van Persie to Manchester United, and Song, who made the move to Barcelona.

"I expected Robin's departure, but Alex, that was a surprise. He's 24 and had three years on his contract," Sagna told l'Equipe.

"When you see your two best players from last season leave, you ask yourself questions.

"In the street, supporters sometimes come to see me. I can understand that they're annoyed. I'm like them - I don't understand everything."

Sagna's own contract is due to expire at the end next season, but the player revealed that he has not had any discussions yet regarding a renewal.

Meanwhile, Sagna is set to make his return to the Gunners first team by the end of September, having broken his leg in the last game of the 2011-12 season against Norwich.
