Bacary Sagna says that Arsenal are like his family and that he is still loving life in North London.

Arsenal defender Bacary Sagna has paid tribute to the club which he says is "like a family" to him.

The Frenchman has spent five years at the Emirates Stadium since moving from Auxerre in 2007, and has recently been linked with a move to Inter Milan after hitting out at the club in the summer.

However, Sagna has developed into arguably the most consistent right-back in the Premier League during his tenure at the Gunners and admits that he is still loving life in North London.

"It has been magic. I've enjoyed a lot playing for Arsenal and I still love it," Sagna told Arsenal Player. "Every time I go to the pitch, I just give 100% for the team.

"[The club] is like my family. My personal family is in France but I feel at home here, I feel happy to come training and I feel relaxed. There are not many big clubs where you feel that confident.

"I think I have progressed a lot - that was my target, to come to such a big club and improve. I am very calm compared to when I came, I used to be a bit stressed before games but now I am totally relaxed because of my teammates and the manager."

Arsenal host Tottenham Hotspur in the North London derby on Saturday.
