France right back Bacary Sagna will join Manchester City next season after agreeing a three-year contract with the English Premier League football champions.

Sagna, who made his final appearance for Arsenal in FA Cup final victory over Hull City last month, will complete his move after the World Cup finals.

The 31-year-old made 284 appearances for Arsenal after joining them from Auxerre in 2007.

He has won 41 caps for France who face Switzerland, Ecuador and Honduras in group E of the World Cup.

Sagna, who is being given the squad number three, is expected to join City's squad in time to join them on a pre-season tour to the United States. He wore the same squad number with Arsenal.

He is the first major addition to his triumphant squad made by City manager Manuel Pellegrini.
