Sokratis Papastathopoulos has revealed will leave Arsenal for pastures new if he doesn't start playing more football.


The 31-year-old broke the deadlock with a brilliant finish in Monday night's 2-0 FA Cup fifth-round win at Portsmouth, with Eddie Nketiah hitting the target early in the second half to secure the victory.


Papastathopoulos has been out of the Gunners starting XI in recent matches as Mikel Arteta prefers David Luiz and Shkodran Mustafi at the heart of his back-four.


And, Papastathopoulos says he won't hesitate to move on if he has to despite previously saying he would leave the north London club when his contract expires in 2021.

"I don't know," he replied when quizzed if he would leave next year. "I have one more year here but me, I never sit on my contract.


"I don't care. If I'm not happy, I don't play enough or the coach doesn't like me, I don't care about the contract.


"For me the money is not important, it is important I feel good, I feel happy and the team is happy with me. If not, I take the road and I finish.


"I don't think about it, I think every day to be happy and help the team and in the end we will see but what I say is that I am not a player who sits on a contract - I don't need it."
