Gilberto admits likely Arsenal departure

The Brazilian, who was linked with a January move away from the Emirates, has confirmed he has struggled without first-team football this term.

The 31-year-old is tied to Arsenal until the summer of 2009 and has hinted the time may be right to move on, if he fails to win a place in Arsene Wenger's side in the end of season run in.

"I'm trying to adjust to the situation, but I confess it's not been easy," stated Gilberto.

"I love the club and Arsene is a good man and a good manager - but there are only two months to go and I haven't played much.

"I will wait until the end of the season and then make my decision. If a good opportunity comes along then I don't see any other option."
