Arsenal defender Bacary Sagna has played down speculation that he could leave the north London club in the summer after being linked with a possible move to big-spending French side Paris Saint-Germain.

The vastly experienced right-back has been strongly linked with a move away from Arsenal after he failed to earn a new contract along with several other high profile members of the squad.

Sagna's deal expires in just under 18 months and there had been a suggestion that he would be prepared to leave the club if a longer-term offer was made.

PSG are currently top of the league and are still in the Champions League as they bid to become the next dominant force in European football.

They have demonstrated their spending power in signing the likes of Javier Pastore, Thiago Silva and Lucas Moura, whilst also showing they can attract superstars to the club like Zlatan Ibrahimovic and David Beckham.

Sagna was linked with a move to the French capital during the January transfer window, but the defender has made it clear that he plans to see out his contract with Arsenal and that he has had no contact with anyone from PSG.

"The January transfer rumours regarding PSG? I am 100 per cent devoted to my club," Sagna told French newspaper L'Equipe."I am only thinking about defending the colours of Arsenal until the end of my contract.

"The fans are angry with me because they heard about PSG's interest, but I am not responsible for that. I have never had any contact."

The 29-year-old had come in for some criticism after some uncharacteristic mistakes and there is a genuine feeling that young right-back Carl jenkinson is now pushing Sagna hard for a place in the first team.
