Bordeaux ace Malcom, linked with Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United last month, confirms that he intends to quit the French club later this year.

Bordeaux ace Malcom has confirmed that an agreement is in place to leave the club in the summer, amid strong rumoured interest from a number of Premier League sides.

The 20-year-old was keen to quit Les Girondins last month after Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur both reportedly made enquiries over his availability.

Boss Gus Poyet fought hard to keep his star asset in place, but the North London rivals are both said to still be weighing up bids and could be joined in the race by Manchester United.

Malcom respects Bordeaux for giving him a platform to showcase his talents in European football, but intends to move on if a concrete offer is tabled at the end of the campaign.

"Yes, there was a promise that I will be negotiating in June," he told Brazilian outlet UOL. "I will choose the team, and Bordeaux will let me go.

"I already said that I would have liked to leave this winter to meet new challenges. But I must also remember that Bordeaux helped me a lot.

"I gave my word to Bordeaux that I will continue [with the club] to be able to have more time to choose my future club. These next three or four months will make a big difference."

Malcom, comfortable playing in a number of attacking positions, has eight goals and six assists in 24 Ligue 1 outings this term.
