Arshavin Is An Arsenal Player Say Zenit

Arshavin Is An Arsenal Player Say Zenit

Ever since the January transfer window slammed shut at 5pm(ish) yesterday, confusion has reigned supreme as to whether the Gunners had captured their main target, Andrei Arshavin.

Despite the registration paperwork allegedly reaching Premier League head quarters at 4.30pm, a good half an hour before the window closed, the deal has still the be ratified after only one of the PL's administrators made an appearance at work after some freak snow storms.

However, this morning it's seems that the transfer will be confirmed (though if they could get their fingers out it would be appreciated) by the Premier League and that Arshavin will wear the number 23 shirt.

Indeed Zenit St. Petersburg claim the transfer had gone through.

Zenit spokesman Alexei Petrov (the idiot who caused the confusion in the first place by claiming the deal had fallen through at the last) said 'Both clubs have managed to complete the deal. Arshavin will play for Arsenal from now on, the conditions of the contract are very favourable for Zenit, the value of the deal is much more than £12million.'

So one of the most ridiculous transfer in living memory is about to draw to a close, and with that I'd urge Arsene Wenger and his board never to deal with the rank amateurs at Zenit who have done absolutely nothing to make this deal run smoothly, indeed they made a pretty good job of ensuring this transfer was enveloped in twattishness.

Heh, *****tishness is putting things mildly. We all thought the Nasri transfer was protracted eh. This one puts our feelings in the summer in firm perspective. Lets welcome him once we see it on Arsenal.com.

If this deal falls through i'm going to **** in a sock and throw it at my next door neighbours living room window! I realise it's not his fault but it would cheer me up! Let's hope for his sake that Arshavin is a done deal.......

good grief! I wish Zenit would quit talking. They make my brain hurt! Lets hope we get the official word from Arsenal.com this morn as i aint believing a single word coming out of the Zenit camp after the last month of fun and games! On another note I kind of hope he gets the number 10 shirt during the summer due to it becoming "vacant"!

Rocky, I read that Bayern had signed Timoschuk (??) from Zenit, and I certainly did not read more than one column that reported his actual signing, never mind the tedium of the daily Arshavin updates. So, this extra effort seems to be only in Arshavin's case - we just happened to be caught in the crossfire.
