LONDON -- France and Arsenal defender Bacary Sagna will join English Premier League champion Manchester City from next season. Sagnas contract at Arsenal expires at the end of June, and his move from the Emirates Stadium was widely expected after he reportedly rejected a two-year contract extension. Sagna also posted a farewell message to Arsenal on social media before the transfers announcement. Sagna will join City for the clubs preseason tour in the United States after the World Cup in Brazil, where he is with the France squad. The 31-year-old right-back joined Arsenal seven years ago from French side Auxerre and played in 284 matches for the Gunners. But he did not win a single trophy in North London before lifting the FA Cup in his final appearance for the club last month in Wembley. Sagna is expected to sign a deal estimated by British media at 140,000 pounds ($237,000) a week with City. In a statement released on the Gunners website, the club thanked Sagna "for his fantastic contribution." City confirmed Sagnas arrival and said he will keep the No. 3 jersey he wore at Arsenal.

He stepped into the shot and fired it over Scrivens shoulder. St. Louis was burned by a pair of former players in the second period. Perron found a soft spot in the St. Louis defense in the high slot, and he wristed a shot by Allen with traffic in front for his third goal this season. Edmonton took its first lead with less than four minutes remaining in the second. Hall found Nikitin sneaking into the play from the blue line and made a cross-ice pass that Nikitin lifted past Allen for his second of the season.
