Arsenal have finally confirmed the sale of young midfielder Oguzhan Ozyakup to Besiktas for…wait for it…an undisclosed fee.
Having undertaken a medical with the Turkish side over a month ago, its almost as if the Gunners completely forgot to announce the deal. Indeed, the wait has been so long that it sort of feels as though we’ve sold him twice. Swap ‘signing’ for ‘sale’ and he’s a LANS of sort…
Weirdly Ozyakup hasn’t been the only player waiting to hear confirmation of his exit. Carlos Vela, despite being publicly paraded by Real Sociedad as their marquee signing of the summer, is still listed as a squad player on the Arsenal website. Will we ever get to use the headline ‘Goodbye Mr Chips’?
Anyway, Arseblog News waits with wobbling top lip to read of the sale of Charlie George to Derby and the exit of Frank McLintock to QPR. What’s more, you can be sure as anything we’ll go mental at George Graham when Rocky leaves for Leeds and Anders Limpar is snapped up by Everton. Why George? WHY?
