Arsenal`s Sebastian Larsson has signed for Birmingham City on a permanent basis.

The young Swede originally signed for The Blues on a season-long loan but after impressing manager Steve Bruce, he has now signed a 4-year deal.

He was signed by Arsene Wenger for a nominal fee back in 2001 but he failed to make the grade at Arsenal.

Larsson has become a vital part of Birmingham`s team since his arrival, making appearances in all the midfield positions as well as playing as a full-back. He has cost the Blues £1,000,000


Upon signing him Bruce had this to say: “We are delighted to finally conclude the deal to bring Seb here on a permanent basis.

“He has done well since he has been here and can play in a number of positions.

“He is young, hungry and ambitious and he epitomises the kind of player this club needs to push forward.”

Vital Arsenal wish Larsson all the best with his future career, wherever it may take him.

  • Good move for Larsson. He wouldnt have made it at arsenal with so many players for the full back and midfield positions. best of luck to him !! Simmo, the official site says its an undisclosed amount and rumours said 0.5 mil for him. good deal by arsene if we sold him for 1 mil, i think.

  • Good move!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! a move to the sty is never good, but at least he will never make it back to the prem to haunt you (unless he changes club of course).

  • i hope we have a sell on clause. I have a feeling he’ll do reasonably well and end up in Liverpool for a ridiculous amount.

  • all the best to him, hope he does well there and moves onto greater things in his career, cheers sebs..

  • G4, Wenger put’s a sell on clause in all of the youngsters transfers. We get nearly £2M for the Upson to West Ham deal.

  • great man that Arsene Wenger, and great man that simmy8, as well. Jolly good bloke Mr. Rocha of the spuds. Another less-than-average player to keep them where they deserve to be… when will they learn?
