CONFIRM!! Ars to Ars

The Premier League have confirmed Andrei Arshavin is an Arsenal player after approving his move from Zenit St Petersburg.

Both the Gunners and the player himself had faced an anxious wait after a race to get a deal agreed, signed and sealed on deadline day.

The 27-year-old moves to the Gunners for an "undisclosed fee on a long term contract" as is now the statutory transfer statement at the Emirates.

Earlier on Tuesday Zenit reported the fee to be a total of £16.9m including future incentives.

The playmaker shot to prominence at Euro 2008 after being a hugely important figure in Russia's qualifying campaign as well as being instrumental in Zenit winning the Russian title in 2007.

Arshavin played 232 games for Zenit, scoring 51 goals and was the 2006 Russian Footballer of the Year.

THE MOST AWAITED TRANSFER MOVE!! THE BEGINNING OF ARSENAL REVIVAL!!
