Gilberto: To make summer decision

Arsenal's out-of-favour midfielder Gilberto Silva has confirmed he will make a decision on his future this summer.

The Brazilian lost the captain's armband at the start of the season to William Gallas before losing his place in the side to Mathieu Flamini.

Gilberto, who was linked with a January move away from the Emirates, has confirmed he has struggled without first-team football this term.

The 31-year-old is tied to Arsenal until the summer of 2009 and has hinted the time may be right to move on, if he fails to win a place in Arsene Wenger's side in the end of season run in.

Adjust

"I'm trying to adjust to the situation, but I confess it's not been easy," stated Gilberto.

"I love the club and Arsene is a good man and a good manager - but there are only two months to go and I haven't played much.

"I will wait until the end of the season and then make my decision. If a good opportunity comes along then I don't see any other option."
