Arsenal coach Andy Woodman is set to leave the club at the end of the season, Football Insider can exclusively reveal.

The Gunners’ head of goalkeeping is out of contract in the summer.

An Arsenal source has told Football Insider that Woodman, 49, has been made aware his contract will not be renewed.

This is said to be partly due to the growing Spanish influence at the club and on the coaching staff.

Arsenal goalkeeper coach Inaki Cana Pavon joined in December 2019 to work with the first teamers when Mikel Arteta was appointed manager.

Woodman has been in charge of the goalkeeping department at Arsenal since 2018.
