Confirmed: Arsenal sign Arteta and Benayoun!

Arsenal has done a great job on the transfer deadline day.

It is now officially confirmed that Andre Santos, Per Mertesacker and Benayoun have joined Arsenal.

According to BBC, we also have signed Arteta for a fee of around 10 million. He will join the club on a four year deal.

This is what @bbcsport_david tweeted on twitter minutes after the window officially closed:

“I can confirm Arteta and Bendtner are DONE deals #bbcfootball #afc #safc #efc”

“Arteta signs for Arsenal for fee in region of £10m. No news on contract length, squad number. Bendy to #safc on year-long loan #bbcfootball”

Arsenal has officially confirmed Arteta’s signing and Bendtner’s loan move to Sunderland.

Great news all around!

  28. Lanre says:

    With these signings I now realised that wenger is truely most humiliated by man u defeat because wenger before only experiences vibration & pain defeat.but thanks to him because since man u defeat iam always feel ashame, embarrased & sad of been an arsenal fan. wel i believe problem btw wenger & board member regarding wages structures wil soon solve. Pls board wil stil need David Dein back wenger can’t do it alone. Wil somebody tell nasri to shut the fuck off of stunning arsenal.

  33. LESLIE says:

    Am really excited about the fact that Bendtner is going on loan and not on permanent basis.i feel he has so much in him to offer considering his age and i hope he comes back a better player.
    I’m a bit indifferent about the signings we have made so far simply because i think Wenger left it a bit late.He should have signed all five before the season commenced,that way the team will gel as a unit.All the same i hope the new signings do give us a new lease of life.
