Arsenal sign load deal with Bastia

Arsenal have opted to take on Cameroonian Alexandre Song, nephew of Rigobert Song from Galatasaray, on a single season loan.

Bastia, relegated from the French first division last season, has agreed a fee of 2.75m pounds if Arsenal exercise an option to sign the player at the end of the season.

Apparently Song impressed on trial at Highbury. He practiced in defensive midfield as well as with the back four. He'll probably disappear into the youth side for a while.

If we suffer injuries/suspensions to Gilberto,Flamini or Fabregas,surely Song will feature in the first team as Pires was a disaster when he played in pre-season games in central mid-field and after all he is the same age as Fabregas.I just hope that Wenger has plans to at least buy a further GK before the deadline - preferably with some European experience and at least 6'2 in height (Are decent goalkeepers now such a rare breed?).Also I hope that a fit Campbell returns soon (Fuck off England - we do not want him playing for you anymore) or another CH is a must!!
