New pictures have emerged online this afternoon appearing to end the debate over what Puma's first stab at the famous red and white Arsenal shirt will look like next season, with blue dropped from a more contemporary design by the German manufacturer.
The Gunners confirmed the switch from Nike to Puma back in January in a deal worth a whopping £30m-a-year over the next five years, the biggest partnership of its type in either organisation's history.
Leaked images have been commonplace over the last three months as impatient Gunners fans look to get a first glimpse of an Arsenal kit not made by Nike in two decades, but thanks to Islington Gazette reporter @AFCAcademy's Twitter account that search could well be over.
There were of course premature unofficial publicity shots of what appeared to be Arsenal legend Thierry Henry modelling what appeared to be a new kit alongside Olivier Giroud and British sprinter Linford Christie last year, images that the new photos would appear to match.
Puma's debut home strip appears to have dropped the blue features on Arsenal's current kit, returning to a traditional red and white look that most Gunners fans would associate with matchdays at the Emirates and happier times at Highbury.
AFC Academy also describes the shirt as "extremely light" and not tight fitting, probably a relief to some Arsenal fans who remember Puma's more adventurous efforts from the past decade.
It remains to be seen if the financially-fruitful partnership translates to success on the pitch, or if Arsenal stay in yellow and blue for away games, but Arsenal fans now have a strong idea of what their home shirt for the 2014/15 season looks like well ahead of any official announcement.
