Trialist Dimitrov passes fitness test at London Colney
As originally reported on this site Nikolay Dimitrov began his one week trial period last Monday and according to the Bulgarian press it seems to have got off to a flier.
First he underwent a two hour test session at London Colney which he passed with flying colours and then took part and scored in a training game arranged so that he could be assessed under match conditions.
“I feel incredible. The setting is excellent at Arsenal. The conditions that this historic club offers are the best and make you think only about your football” he said.
He was also impressed with the friendliness he was met with from the other players.
“From the first day, when I popped into the dressing room all faces turned and welcomed me to Arsenal. They asked me about Bulgaria, about Levski. It is great.
I know I will be happy here"
It is reported that Levski will request 1 million euros for Nikolay Dimitrov's transfer.
This though will become clear at the beginning of January when Arsene Wenger is expected to make a decision.
