After what seems like an eternity, the deal to send Andrei Arshavin from Zenit Saint Petersburg to North London's Arsenal is complete. Following the move the Russian international:
"I am so happy to be joining Arsenal. They are one of the leading football clubs in the world, with a group of fantastic young players and a great manager."
In a interesting turn of events, Arsenal face Tottenham on Sunday who feature former Spartak Moskva man and Russian teammate Roman Pavlyuchenko.
