Lukasz Fabianski in talks with English clubs after Arsenal snub

Lukasz Fabianski is in talks with several English clubs after rejecting the chance to prolong his stay at Arsenal.

This information comes courtesy of the London Evening Standard, who also report that the Polish goalkeeper - whose current deal in North London is due to expire this summer - would prefer to remain in English football, with the likes of Newcastle, Swansea and West Ham believed to be interested in his services.

29-year-old Fabianski's stint at Arsenal has been largely frustrating. After joining the Gunners from Legia Warsaw seven years ago, Fabianski has never quite managed to impose himself as the undisputed first choice at the Emirates Stadium.

As perennial back-up to the likes of Manuel Almunia and compatriot Wojciech Szczesny, Fabianski - who has still managed to earn 21 international caps during his career to date - has had to make do with fleeting appearances in domestic cup competition.

Perhaps the most crucial of these performances came under a week ago, as Arsene Wenger demonstrated his faith in Fabianski by resisting the urge to replace him for the all-important FA Cup final against Hull City at Wembley.

Despite the former Lech PoznaƄ 'stopper rarely being required to deputise in the Premier League, Arsenal appeared keen to keep Fabianski, although such a prospect now looks incredibly unlikely with the player obviously keen to secure more regular first-team football elsewhere and having reportedly rebuffed approaches from his current employers.

One presumes that Fabianski may well take his time to ponder his next move, no doubt cautious to ensure that he does not hastily move to another club where he may again be reduced to playing second-fiddle on a consistent basis.
