Tomas Rosicky is set for an emotional return to Sparta Prague, 15 years since leaving his boyhood club.
The 35-year-old midfielder has been training with Arsenal in recent weeks in an attempt to overcome a thigh injury he picked up playing for the Czech Republic at Euro 2016.
He’s due to be confirmed as a Sparta player at a press conference this afternoon.

Super Tom spent a decade with the Gunners after a big money move from Borussia Dortmund in 2006 scoring 28 goals in 246 appearances.
Arsenal bid farewell to the midfielder on the final day of last season when he was presented with a silver cannon and a guard of honour to recognise his achievements at the club.
Best of luck to him back at Sparta. We’ll be keeping a close(ish) eye on him from afar.
