Arsenal cut ties as Guendouzi joining Olympique Marseille

Arsenal midfielder Matteo Guendouzi is joining Olympique Marseille on-loan.

And a clause in his contract, inserted by the Gunners, suggests the French midfielder will not be returning to north London.

Arsenal included an option-to-buy clause in the contract, suggesting manager Mikel Arteta still doesn't see a future for Guendouzi at the Emirates, says the Mirror.

The 22-year-old's goodbye message took social media by surprise on Monday when wrote directly to the Arsenal fans.

"Thank you Arsenal. Thanks for everything!" he said.

"I discovered and learned so much during my time here. It would be impossible to list everything without forgetting one memory or word… but I will never forget any minute spent with the Gunners jersey.

"I will never forget the Emirates Stadium. I will never forget the fans. I won't forget the city."

Confirmation of the deal is expected today.
