Some good news at last for Arsenal fans in the Football Transfer Tavern, although it does not concern a new arrival.
However Gunners fans are still delighted to hear the news that Nicklas Bendtner is finally on his way out of the Emirates Stadium; it sure has been a long time coming.
Arsenal have finally released the Danish forward after 10 years and 171 appearances, various disciplinary problems, and loan spells at Birmingham City, Sunderland and even Juventus.
It is one moment of bright news in what has shaped up to be another disappointing transfer window for Arsenal fans thus far.
Bacary Sagna has joined Manchester City, whilst Chelsea have secured the signing of former captain Cesc Fabregas – a player widely tipped to re-sign for the Gunners.
It has certainly not been the big spending summer Arsene Wenger had been tipped to enjoy, with the FA Cup winners said to have a huge transfer budget following their kit deal with sportswear giants Puma.
It has been quiet thus far, and at the moment it is looking as though there could be further exits before any new arrivals.
