Wenger Confirms Diarra Exit, Sort Of

Arsene Wenger's latest comments have all but confirmed football's worst kept secret that Arsenal midfielder is on his way out of Ashburton Grove.

Diarra signed for Arsenal from Chelsea at the beginning of the season, and despite proving himself to be a magnificent player, the lack of first team opportunities coupled with an impatient attitude means Diarra will not be an Arsenal player for much longer.

In Wenger's Friday press conference, he confirmed that nothing has been decided with regards to Lassana's future, but he'll tell us the news when there is some.

The Frenchman said, '[There is] nothing [to announce] at the moment. When we have some news will give it to you, don't worry,'

I hate to see talent wasted, but to challenge for honours you need players who want to play for the club, and whilst I rate Diarra highly, we have no place for the wrong attitude.

Well people keep saying we let go English kids. The problem is that, English or foreign, some of these kids are just too impatient to wait for their chances. It just happens that quite a few English kids we had were more impatient than others. And on the other hand, Seb Larsson wanted first-team football too but realistically accepted that he was 'not good enough' (his words) to compete with the likes of Cesc so he had to go to further his career. And he's big enough to admit it and still think very highly of Arsenal. Add his winning goal at WHL and you just have to like the kid: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/pages/live/articles/sport/football.html?in_article_id=507599&in_page_id=1779&ct=5

Latest I've read is he's going out on loan 'til the summer to get 1st team playing experience, then Arsene will reassess the situation then. He's named in the squad for tomorrow.

Louisa, I've been looking in my usual places, but at the moment I can't find it. The report said that Murcia, a team half way up the Spanish league was the likely destination
