Diaby put on the release list

Abou Diaby is set to leave Arsenal after the injury-plagued midfielder was named on the release list by the Premier League.

The 29-year-old Frenchman joined the Gunners from Auxerre in January 2006 but saw his progress halted by a horrific broken ankle following a tackle by Sunderland's Dan Smith at the Stadium of Light in May at the end of that first campaign.

Despite making several comeback attempts Diaby continued to be hit by a string of fitness issues, the latest being a cruciate knee injury which sidelined him for 14 months, after which he made only one appearance last season, in the Capital One Cup tie against Southampton on September 23.
