Arsenal midfielder Andrey Arshavin has rejoined Zenit St Petersburg on loan until July, the Russian club announced on Friday.
The 30-year-old started his career at Zenit before moving to north London in early 2009 and they had claimed earlier this week they had been in talks with the player.
Arshavin has been a bit-part player in north London this season, making most of his 27 appearances as a substitute and has fallen out of favour with Arsenal's fans.
