Speculation that Andrei Arshavin had flown to London to sign for Arsenal should the North London outfit and Zenit thrash out a deal on the final day of the transfer window, has been confirmed as Sky Sports News transmitted footage of the Gunners target this morning.

One could have been forgiven for thinking the video was filmed in St Pertersburg as a well wrapped up Arshavin was pictured talking on his phone in a snowy setting, however it has been confirmed he was in Hertfordshire and not Russia.

In one of the longest transfer sagas since ….. well ….. the signing of Sami Nasri in the summer, Arshavin now seems to be one step closer to the red and white of Arsenal.

More news as it happens.
