Arsenal have completed the signing of midfielder Tomas Rosicky from Borussia Dortmund. The 25-year-old Czech Republic international has joined on a long-term contract for an undisclosed fee. Probably around 7m pounds.  Rosicky said: 'I'm really happy to be here at Arsenal, it is a great day for me.'  Gunners boss Arsene Wenger said: 'We are delighted to welcome Tomas to our squad. He has great technique, skill on the ball and sharp passing.'

Lovenkrands snubs Middlesborough 

Rangers winger Peter Lovenkrands has turned down a potential move to Middlesbrough and has agreed to join German side Schalke. The Danish international has agreed terms on a three-year deal with the Bundesliga outfit.Boro had approached Lovenkrands, but just as he did in January, the 26-year-old rejected the chance to move to the Riverside Stadium.

Vignal joins Lens

Defender Gregory Vignal has moved from Portsmouth to Lens on a four-year contract. The 24-year-old Vignal, who played for Bastia, Rennes, Espanyol and Rangers after leaving Liverpool in 2003, had been left on Pompey's bench since Harry Redknapp replaced Alain Perrin as coach in January. Gregory rejected a move to Lyon managed by former Liverpool manager Houllier.

seems like another great transfer for arsenal, i really like the player for some time now.
seems like a very good replacement for bergkmap,and it seems he is getting the #10 shirt, that is why they didnt give him a number yet, cause bergkamp’s testimonial hasnt been played yet.

It’s a good signing and a cheap one. Two seasons back Rosicky would have cost multi-figures.
