Sead Kolasinac leaves by mutual consent

Sead Kolasinac in Arsenal training

Sead Kolasinac has left the club by mutual consent.

The 28-year-old defender who joined us from German side Schalke in June 2017, has become a free agent with his contract being terminated with immediate effect, and has joined French Ligue 1 side Olympique Marseille.

The Bosnia and Herzegovina international, who spent the second half of last season back on loan with Schalke, made 118 appearances in all competitions during his time with us.

Spending six seasons in Schalke’s first team squad, Sead was named in the Bundesliga Team of the Season for 2016/17 before signing for us that summer. He made an instant impact, scoring on his debut against Chelsea in the FA Community Shield, a game which ended 1-1, with us winning on penalties.

The left-sided defender, who featured at the 2014 FIFA World Cup, won the FA Cup with us in 2020, coming on a late substitute in the 2-1 victory over Chelsea.

Everyone at Arsenal would like to thank Sead for his contribution to the club since he joined us in 2017 and wish him all the best for his future.
