Fringe duo wait on possible loan moves

Conor Henderson and Ignasi Miquel are both eager to consolidate their Arsenal credentials this season with the former open to furthering his football education on loan and the latter focused on getting fit and discussing his options at the end of the transfer window.

This time last year Irish winger Henderson was enjoying a fine pre-season with the Gunners first team squad before a cruciate knee ligament injury ruled him out for nine months.

Now back to full fitness, and in fine form judging by his two goal salvo against Bolton in first fixture of the new under-21 league, the 20-year-old says he is happy to follow in the footsteps of Benik Afobe and Ryo Miyaichi by testing himself on loan.

“It is important for me to get games this season,” he told

“I think the plan for me now is to go out on loan, get some first-team experience and see where I go from there.

“A few clubs are asking about me but I think they want to see I am match fit before they take me, so hopefully I can have a few more games for the under-21s and do that.”

Arsenal’s fifth choice centre-back, assuming Sebastien Squillaci leaves before September, and an emergency left-back option, Ignasi Miquel is somewhat nearer to gaining first team action.

Indeed, given his proximity to Arsene Wenger’s starting line-up it appears the young Spaniard is willing to wait before discussing any such loan move of his own.

“Right now, I just aim to make sure I am fit and ready,” said Miquel. “Then I’ll have to wait. I haven’t really thought about anything else – first of all I want to see how all the players are, who comes and goes, and then we’ll see what happens.

“We start from the beginning now and I really want to do well this season – working hard until I’m an Arsenal first-team player.”

Decent lads, hope you come back strong.


There were rumors about us giving Miquel on loan to Malaga, no? Would be good experience for him, but I don’t want him within sniffing distance of Barcelona.


No. Miquel needs English footie, not the tippy-tappy spanish shit.


Send him to Stoke ..

maybe then they will understand that there is no need to play Neanderthal football all the time .. and that you can be a defender and be graceful and technical at the same time ..

Miquel would man-up watching Pulis joining their lads in the shower, and Stoke will see the light of modern football ..


Vimto – Saying “send him to Stoke” sounds to me like saying “send him to the Russian Front (from WWII)”

I don’t believe we should be sending our up and coming talent to those thugs


When was the last time England won a major Championship? When was the last time Spain did? Cant be that tippy tappy


I thought he was supposed to be going to Brighton – what happened to that?


His agent, the reisbearcum was unavailable for further comment. We’ll have to wait for further developments.

I know this isn’t relevant to the article, but The Independent are saying Sahin has passed his medical with us and is to be announced in the next 24 hours, whilst the Evening Standard are saying he’s now talking to Liverpool.
Are there more than one of this guy or something?


He obviously signs for both teams.


he is gaining some prem league experience!jus sahin


6 months for us then 6 months for litterpool. Win us the f.a cup and takes us to the top of the table then embark to litterpool in their europa league struggles as cazorla and co finish the business for us in the champions league. Works just fine!.

reality cheque

If Sahin could win us the FA Cup in 6 months i.e. in February he will become the greatest player in Arsenal history. Seeing as the final is in May.


Yep, I hate smart arses.

reality cheque

I love smart arses. Theirry, Dennis, Senderos…


sahin him up


Obviously we’re still at the “Make whatever shit up you like, no-one can confirm it either way” stage of proceedings


So how many hijacks are we up to now? Liverpool reported to be hijacking Arsenal’s hijack of Liverpool’s hijack of Arsenal’s approach?


arteta wilshere rosicky diaby cazorla frimpong coquelin ramsey oxlade-chamberlain & arshavin can all play in CM positions… we don’t need him, especially on a loan deal.

deep lying – arteta diaby frimpong coquelin
box to box – rosicky wilshere ramsey
attacking – cazorla oxlade-chamberlain arshavin

i think we are pretty well covered for the 3 in the middle.

We need another option up front.


Loaning Ignasi would actually makes sense, if Arsene is indeed on the market for another defender with the same charasteristics (ie a centre/left back).


what is this?there is no news on incoming players.Im so navas..just sahin!.But m’villin to wait.

“Arsenal’s fifth choice centre-back, assuming Sebastien Squillaci leaves before September, and an emergency left-back option, Ignasi Miquel is somewhat nearer to gaining first team action.”

I think there have been enough times Miquel has come on instead of Squillaci (who was available) to be able to label him as our 5th-choice w/ or w/o Squillaci.

Sorry for the delay in sorting out the troll. It’s done now but I guess you could say we couldn’t handle the Truth.


I couldn’t handle his illiteracy!

When will Lansbury Watt and Eastmond be sold / released?


Yes they both have no chance of ever getting into this team, they better leave!. Lansbury opening the door, craig following closely behind. Wenger waves goodbye!


Truth is a fucking spud. And he just can’t handle that truth
