Mathieu Debuchy has confirmed that he is seeking a transfer away from Arsenal this month.

The French defender has found his first-team opportunities at Emirates Stadium severely restricted this season after falling behind youngster Hector Bellerin in the north London club’s pecking order.

The 30-year-old right-back has only made two Premier League appearances for Arsene Wenger’s men so far this season and has been heavily linked with a transfer to Aston Villa in recent days.

Now, the player himself has confirmed that he is on the lookout for a move away from Arsenal as he bids to gain some regular playing time in the build-up to this summer’s European championships in France.

Debuchy told L’Equipe: It’s true, they [Villa] are among the teams interested in me. I am currently studying everything but it’s not a possibility I have excluded.

“Whatever happens, even if it is to return this summer and then start again, I have to go this winter. I cannot stay at Arsenal.”

Debuchy has made a total of seven appearances for Arsenal so far this season in all competitions.

He started three of the club’s Champions League group games as they reached the last 16 and set up a clash with Barcelona.
