Summer signing no.4: Sagna signs on.


Finally, Bakari Sagna has completed his move to Arsenal. Arsenal.com have just released this statement:

"Bacary Sagna completes move to Arsenal

French defender Bacary Sagna has signed for Arsenal from Auxerre on a long-term contract for an undisclosed fee.

Sagna (24) who won the French Cup with Auxerre in 2005, was recently called up to the French national squad, where he was an unused substitute in his country’s Euro 2008 Qualifier victory over Georgia in June.

Bacary, who was born in France but has Senegalese parents, has been a regular for Auxerre over the past three seasons, making 87 appearances for the French side during that time. Featuring predominantly at right back, Sagna played a part in Auxerre’s UEFA Cup campaign last season."

He's going to wear the number 3 shirt. Remind me again who wore that last?

I'll provide a full review of this signing - one I'm extremely happy about - later this evening.

For now, let's hope his playing ability is better than his hair style...

The number 3 makes me wonder if perhaps he will be placed on the left and Clichy pushed forward. Or just a spare number and I'm seeing too much into it. Decent club record but the looks of it, I'm sure he will do a good job for The Arsenal

Best Auxerre player last year according to Auxerre fans. Better than Kaboul by quite some distance.

Yes that hairstyle has to go

An excellent buy, we need cover for full-backs. IMO none of the current full backs will go anywhere, AW is just adding quality to the squad.

Excellent hair.

would definately be eboue pushin forward out of him n clichy. Gael's a decent defender aswell, Eboue was gash at defending last year.

Besides, EB will be missing for the African Nations. so we wulda been left thin.
