Injured Arsenal midfielder Samir Nasri says he will start his rehabilitation next month.

The France international - who scored seven times for the Gunners last season - broke a bone in his right leg after a collision with team-mate Abou Diaby during a training session in Austria last month.

"It's better that it happened now rather than right in the middle of the season.

"So it is just a case of being patient ... I have three weeks of immobility remaining before starting my physiotherapy in early September."
