Contrary to what the rather slow and unreliable British press would have you believe Andrei Arshavin has signed for Arsenal Football Club on the dotted line.
Information emerging in Russia indicates that Arshavin undertook a medical at Arsenal yesterday but the team doctors were unsure about a heart related matter.
They therefore held a second check up the next day at London Colney (hence the photos of Arshavin in a Hertfordshire hotel). This it is reported he passed with flying colours and has duly signed for Arsenal.
Some Russian papers are even publishing a photo of Andrei in an Arsenal shirt although we think it may be a “computer enhanced” one.
It is also understood that personal terms have been agreed and that Zenit’s demands of 2.5 Euros have also been arranged.
The fact he got on the plane bound for Russia has been misinterpreted by Sky and others that the deal was off. Apparently nothing can be further from the truth!
The Russian press are saying that he got on the plane in order to return to St Petersberg, pack his bags and along with his wife and kids relocate to London were he will be plying his trade in the not too distant future.
Against Tottenham may be next Sunday where he will be playing against his old team mate Pavlichenco!
