Concerning England Under – 21’s
Concerning Andrei Arshavin
“Recently I sent a formal letter to Dennis Lachter, which said that I do not want him to continue to represent me and that I will act on my own behalf,”
“This is no way associated with my Arsenal contract. On the contrary, I want to express my deep gratitude for Lachter’s help in moving to the English club.
“But now I am having operational problems and Dennis, who has a newborn son, lives in Israel and cannot always be close to me, so it is easier to solve all these problems myself.”
Good riddance, now we’ll have one less agent to start exit rumours this transfer window, and probably the next few. With Arshavin stating that he would like to end his career back at Zenit, you can’t help to but get a feeling like another “transfer saga” is just around the corner. Maybe firing Lachter will make up for all the money he lost from taxes in the UK? It’s a thought eh! (Canada eh!)
Concerning Samir Carruthers
Concerning Felipe Melo
Concerning Henri Lansbury
“We have asked Arsenal the question about Henri”
“And my understanding is they would be quite happy for him to come back here if they decide to release him on loan again. Arsenal, Chelsea and West Ham have all looked closely at what we do with players we take on loan.
“But as far as Henri is concerned, he will train with the first team squad at Arsenal for the first month when the players report back for the new season. Then the club will make a decision as to whether he goes back out on loan again.”
I have no objection to him returning to Scunthorpe. He played well during his last loan spell, scoring several times. For a while, it didn’t seem like Henri would ever make it big, with all the spot lights being focused on Wilshere, but he’s changed my opinion and he was even included in the FA Youth Cup final squad. I would be not at all surprised if Henri became a first team member in the next two or three years.
