Jeremie Aliadiere has admitted he is likely to leave Arsenal in January.
The 23-year-old was looking to make an impact on the first team picture at Emirates Stadium this season, following loan spells with Celtic, Wolves and West Ham last term.
However, once again Aliadiere is on the fringe of matters and despite continued insistence that he is happy at Ashburton Grove - he admits a move is likely.
"I always wanted to come back to Arsenal but I thought I'd be playing more and I'm disappointed that hasn't been the case," he opined.
"I worked really hard in pre-season to get fit and I've scored in the reserve and Carling Cup matches I've played in since coming back.
"I'm ready to play but the manager hasn't given me the opportunity.
"I understand there is a lot of competition and I love the club. I don't want to leave - but my career is more important. I'm still young and I want to play every week.
"I'm just going to do my best until the transfer window opens in January, then I'll see what happens."
