Cape Town - Manchester City left-back Gael Clichy has revealed that he will leave the club when his contract expires next month.

Clichy is of seven players within the City squad reaching the end of their current deals, fellow defender Pablo Zabaleta having already announced his departure last week.

The former France international made just 16 Premier League appearances for Pep Guardiola's side as they secured automatic qualification for the Champions League after finishing third in the table.

And Clichy told City fans in a Q&A session at an exclusive screening of 93:20, a documentary about Sergio Aguero's league-winning goal in 2012, that his six-year stay at the Etihad Stadium will soon be coming to an end.

Asked if he expected to play alongside Joe Hart in the new campaign, the 31-year-old told supporters: "It's hard.

"I'm not sure whether or not Joe will be here next season, and I won't be here next season."

Clichy won two league titles and two League Cup winners' medals during his time at Eastlands, racking up 192 appearances in total.
