Arsenal have confirmed that a deal to sell Samir Nasri to Manchester City has been agreed.

The French midfielder had one year remaining on his current deal at The Emirates Stadium and has opted to join City in the wake of reported interest from Manchester United.

Despite training with The Gunners ahead of their Champions League play off second leg against Udinese, Nasri will undergo a medical with City instead of travelling to Italy.

An Arsenal statement said: "Arsenal can confirm that they have agreed terms for Samir Nasri to move to Manchester City."

Had the 24-year-old figured for the club on Wednesday evening, only Arsenal's failure to win the tie would have prevented him from being ineligible for City during their own Champions League run.


Nasri did play for Arsenal in their last league outing against Liverpool, but it will turn out to be his final showing for the club where he spent three years.

The France international is the fourth major departure from Arsenal this summer, following the sale of Gael Clichy, Cesc Fabregas and Emmanuel Eboue.

Meanwhile, City are set to confirm their fifth signing of the summer in Nasri, to add to Clichy, Stefan Savic, Costel Pantilimon and Sergio Aguero.
