Arsenal star not ruling out Turkey transfer

Arsenal defender Andre Santos says he would not rule out the prospect of a transfer back to former club Fenerbahce, should the opportunity present itself in the future.

The Brazil international signed for Arsenal from Fenerbahce for €7 million in last year's summer transfer window, having spent two years playing for the Turkish giants.

Santos, though, has made only ten Premier League starts for Arsenal since his move to the Emirates Stadium, with such a low return owing both to injury and an initial inability to adapt to the English game.

The 29-year-old is now undoubtedly behind Kieran Gibbs in Arsene Wenger's left-back selection order and, although he is relatively content with life at Arsenal, revealed he would be open to rejoining Fenerbahce.

"I would like to state clearly that I have a lot of respect for Fenerbahce, and I love Istanbul but for now I am a Gunner," Santos tweeted.

"For now, I have not received an offer from a Turkish team.

"However, if I receive an offer one day, thinking what is best for my family, I will make a decision."

Santos has appeared just three times for Arsenal this season, with his last outing coming in the 3-1 defeat of West Ham at Upton Park on October 6.
