Arsenal confirm Gallas release

Arsenal have released their former captain William Gallas.

The Sunday Mirror says Gallas joins Chelsea's Joe Cole and Michael Ballack as the most high-profile casualties as Premier League clubs release 124 players from their contracts this summer.

The 32-year-old France star had been demanding a new two-year contract on wages of £80,000 a week.

Chairman Peter Hill-Wood said last month: "His demands are extravagant and I don't think we are prepared to go along with it. He is a good player, but you have got to draw the line somewhere."
