Lassana Diarra is ready to quit Arsenal, according to reports in France.

The 22-year-old midfielder joined the Gunners from Chelsea at the end of August but - with the likes of Cesc Fabregas, Gilberto, Mathieu Flamini and Denilson all vying for a place in the side - Diarra believes he is just not getting enough football.

Diarra, a regular with the French national side, told Sunday´s edition of L´Equipe: "We´re halfway through December, and I´ve decided: I want to leave Arsenal. The bottom line is the coach doesn´t need me."
