Wenger hints at Flamini exit

06 April 2007 12:47
Unsettled Arsenal midfielder Mathieu Flamini looks set to be allowed to leave the Emirates Stadium in the summer. The 23-year-old Frenchman has made 33 appearances for the Gunners this season but is mainly used by manager Arsene Wenger as a second-half substitute. Flamini, who was signed from Marseille in 2004, has become frustrated at the lack of starting opportunities in recent seasons and Wenger has hinted the versatile midfielder could be allowed to leave at the end of the current campaign. Flamini has been used as a makeshift full-back at times this season and is keen to establish himself as a first-team regular. "We have heard about Flamini, who is keen to go and play somewhere where he will get some more games," Wenger told Arsenal TV Online. "I'll regret it but I feel at the moment we have to be understanding as well with him. "We'll sit down at the end of the season and see where we go from there."
