Arsenal are today delighted to announce that former Arsenal captain, Tony Adams has been appointed as the successor of Arsene Wenger at The Emirates. Adams spent all 19 years of his footballing career at The Gunners with 504 appearances and 32 goals. Adams was tipped to be the next boss by Wenger after his retirement and Adams had this to say: "I'm extremely thankful to be given this managerial opportunity at Arsenal. I have to thank Arsene for putting me up for the job even though I was probably one of the least experienced candidates. Arsenal is my club and I am so passionate about the football club and I just can't wait to get started and guide the club back to winning trophies and silverware".
Maybe Adams will be able to bring trophyes and glory to Arsenal, not only money like Wenger did. Good luck!
Thanks AAN!
Good luck :D

New Arsenal boss, Tony Adams has completed his first signing in the way of Marseille goalkeeper, Steve Mandanda. Mandanda joins The Gunners on a three-year deal for a fee believed to be in the region of £11.25m. Mandanda: "I am delighted to now finally become an Arsenal player. Arsenal are a team that only a fool would turn down and hopefully I can do well for the team, the manager and the fans in my time here which I hope will be a long and successful one".
Great signing mate! One of the best gk in the world

Thanks mate :)

Yeah! Glad to get him as cheaply as I did. But, I only have £11m left so it looks like I'm just going to get a right back to cover for Sagna and then hopefully success will get me money and I can build a team later on :D
Take a look at Cedric Soares from Sporting CP, in my career he plays very well and has great potential.

I'll do that when I'm back on... Thanks!

Fulham have completed the signing of Arsenal centre-back, Sebastien Squillaci for around £500k. Squillaci becomes the first player to depart this season from The Emirates but Adams hints that there won't be much more to come from the North Londoners: "We've spent quite a chunk of our budget on Steve and I can now say with this deal being finalised that there won't be much more business done in this window but I'm not saying we're completely done yet".

Unfortunately, Cedric Soares isn't appearing in my game :( Thanks for the recommendation though! Much appreciated :)

Arsenal midfielder, Abou Diaby has completed a £7m move to FC Porto. Diaby joins the Portuguese giants just days after Arsenal boss, Tony Adams revealed that there wouldn't be a lot more transfer activity at the club in this window. Adams: "It's a real shame that Abou has agreed to go. We had a very good working relationship together but he felt that the time was right to move on and when the offer came about from Porto he made it extremely clear that he wanted to move. On the plus side, this does open the door for one or two more arrivals which could help us push for success in the coming future".

Arsenal have snapped up Metalist winger, Jose Sosa on a three-year contract after triggering his £6.25m release clause. The experienced Argentine winger who has 18 caps and a goal for his country joins The Gunners just days after Abou Diaby completed his move to Porto. Adams: "I previously said that the Diaby deal would allow some signings. I'm delighted to be able to welcome Jose to the club. He is a fast and direct player who will add a lot to our squad. There is one more deal in the pipeline which is not far away from completion but after that I don't think there will be any more from us".

Young Spanish full-back, Hugo Mallo has joined Arsenal from Celta Vigo for a fee of around £8.75m. The defender is tipped to be an excellent prospect for the future and this is clear to all given the rather large price tag but Arsenal gaffer, Tony Adams had this to say: "Mallo is an incredibly gifted footballer. Some may say that £8.75m was a lot to pay for someone who may not be a regular starter for the next year or two but I guarantee that this deal will not let down and this is all just part of my long term vision for the football club".
