Arsenal have confirmed that Andre Santos has joined Gremio on loan.
The Brazilian joined the club in August 2011, and made a total of 36 appearances, scoring 3 goals. His first season was hampered by a serious ankle injury, and with the emergence of Kieran Gibbs this campaign has found his chances restricted.
Then, when Gibbs was injured, Arsene Wenger went out and bought Nacho Monreal from Malaga, a sure sign that he had lost faith in the former Fenerbache man.
He wasn’t a bad fella, despite his unadvisable shirt swapping that time, just not the right man for Arsenal.
Arseblog News wishes him well in Brazil, where the meat is plentiful and the sun shines like his smile.
