Published Add your comment

Yossi Benayoun has completed a season-long loan move to Arsenal from Chelsea.

Israel captain Benayoun had been linked with a number of clubs but opted for the Gunners.

Arsenal also confirmed the signings of Per Mertesacker and Andre Santos on transfer deadline while speculation was rife they were in the hunt for Everton midfielder Mikel Arteta.

Benayoun, who is currently on international duty, wrote on Twitter: "I sign with Arsenal, very happy and excited about it, but now my head is only in the game against Greece on Friday, thanks for the support."
