Arsenal have announced the signing of Spanish midfielder Santi Cazorla on a ‘long term contract’.
Cazorla had completed his transfer from Malaga last Thursday but Arsenal were hoping to announce the signing of Cazorla along with Real Madrid midfielder Nuri Sahin on loan, however, a loan deal for Sahin is taking longer than expected.
On joining Arsenal Cazorla said:
“I’m so happy to be joining Arsenal. This is a club with great players, a fantastic stadium and huge support. The club has one of the best managers in football and their style of play is recognised and admired all over the world. I’m so excited to be joining one of the greatest teams in Europe and also in the Premier League. I will do my best to help Arsenal challenge for trophies and make all the supporters happy.”
