Kim Kallstrom leaves Arsenal to return to Moscow

Published 1 Comments

Arsenal have "gagged" new signing Kim Kallstrom from talking to the media, reports Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet.

The Swedish source have been one of the most active reporters in the increasingly mysterious signing Arsenal made on transfer deadline day.

Kallstrom joined the Gunners on loan only for the club to reveal he won't play until at least March as he recovers from a micro-fracture in his back.

Aftonbladet had reported with bemusement that they don't believe Kallstrom will ever play for Arsenal and is likely to spend his entire loan spell on the treatment table.

Now that bemusement moved to another level after Kallstrom was pictured by a journalist at Moscow airport, where he refused to give an interview, saying: " I can not talk."

The paper claim that the player has been gagged by Arsenal from talking to the media as the mystery of his transfer continues to confuse people in his home country.

Kallstrom's return to Moscow is not thought to be anything to do with the transfer and is merely a trip for the 31-year-old to tie up some loose ends.

It brings about another twist in what was a disappointing window for Arsene Wenger. The Arsenal manager failed to sign anyone of particular note, leaving them short in midfield and, more concerningly, up front.

With Arsenal still trying to fight for the title, their lack of signings in the transfers window could cost them dear.
