Arsenal have sold Brazilian left-back Andre Santos to Flamengo for an undisclosed fee.

The 30-year-old, who joined the Gunners for £6.5m from Turkish club Fernabahce in August 2011, was on loan at his native Brazil club Gremio in January 2013 following Arsenal’s signing of Nacho Monreal from Malaga.

A statement on Arsenal FC’s official website read: “Everybody at Arsenal would like to thank Andre for his contribution to the club and we wish him well for his future career.”

A knee injury very early into Santos’ first season with Gunners hampered his development at the club.

He went on to score 3 goals in 33 appearances for the Emirate club before joining Flamingo, where he featured on-loan during the 2005/06 season, on a permanent basis.
