Sagna was reportedly upset with the lack of ambition showed by Arsenal after star players Robin Van Persie and Alex Song were allowed to leave during the summer, and the French international appeared keen to follow his former teammates out of the club.

The 29-year-old's current deal with the Gunners expires at the end of next season, and although initial discussions over a contract extension have begun, it is believed the former Auxerre player has stalled on signing a new deal in the hopes of getting a better pay package and assurances about the direction of the club.

However, Sagna has come out to state that contrary to speculation, he is still enjoying playing for the club and claims he gives nothing but his best when donning the Arsenal jersey.

Speaking to Arsenal Player, Sagna gushed: "It has been magic. I've enjoyed a lot playing for Arsenal and I still love it.

"Every time I go to the pitch, I just give 100 per cent for the team.

"[The Club] is like my family. My personal family is in France but I feel at home here, I feel happy to come training and I feel relaxed. 

"There are not many big clubs where you feel that confident."

The right-back, one of the Gunners' most consistent players, also discussed how he has developed during his time at the club.

"I think I have progressed a lot - that was my target, to come to such a big club and improve," Sagna added.

"I am very calm compared to when I came, I used to be a bit stressed before games but now I am totally relaxed because of my team-mates and the manager."

Sagna is expected to start for the Gunners when they take on Tottenham Hotspur in this Saturday's North London derby.
