On loan Birmingham City midfielder Alexander Hleb says he wants a move to Arsenal after snubbing a deal at Birmingham City.

The Belarus midfielder is currently on loan from Barcelona , who he joined from the north-London club in 2008 for £11.8 million.

However a series of loan spells has left him surplus to requirements at the Nou Camp, and after a spell back in the Premier League with Birmingham, wants a move back to Arsenal.

Hleb says: "I want to give my best for Birmingham but if I have chance to go back to Arsenal, of course I would.

"I am happy and enjoy my time here, everything is good but this is a little bit not my style of football.

"Of course, I love Arsenal."


"It is always in my heart but now is too early to speak about a new club.

"Everything is possible but I am just saying if I get this chance, of course I'd come."

"I have enjoyed it here in a way because it is something new.

"But here you need to just fight and run, not too much passing. This is a different experience and I prefer to play and to enjoy football."

Arsenal has suffered something of an injury crisis this season with Abou Diaby, Cesc Fabregas and Samir Nasri and Hleb would ably support the trio as the Gunners continue their search for a trophy for the first time since 2005.

Arsene Wenger might also be tempted to sign Hleb for a cut price as he enters the final year of his contract with the Arsenal manager previous unwilling to splash out big sums of money in the transfer window.
