Well He`ll Not Be Coming Then!
All those rumours and little pieces of gossip linking us with the Arsenal centre-back Thomas Vermaelen have come to an abrupt end.
It`s being reported this morning, by numerous media sources, the Arsenal defender has passed a medical at Barcelona and has put pen-to-paper on a five year deal with Arsenal receiving a transfer fee said to be something in the region of £15 million.
I guess Arsene Wenger got his wish when it came to not selling the Belgian defender to another Premier League club, especially a Premier League title rival.
But at that price, I can`t say I`m too bothered, if he`s not a regular at the heart of the Arsenal defence, why would he be considered to be good enough for ours?
