  • DONE DEAL: Arsenal have confirmed the signing of attacking midfielder Thomas Eisfeld from Borussia Dortmund on a long-term contract.
    1/31/2012 7:00:10 PM
  • It's an Arsenal signing, but rather a typical one. No-one has heard of him and he's a teenager. A bit more specifically, Thomas Eisfeld is a 19-year-old attacking midfielder who came through the ranks at Borussia Dortmund. He suffered a serious knee injury in 2009 and it's expected he will play below the Arsenal first team this season. It's understood the German cost around £400,000.

  • Arsenal's new signing Thomas Eisfeld says: "It's a real honour to be team-mates with the great players at Arsenal, and also training every day with players like Tomas Rosicky - who I grew up watching play at Dortmund." Speaking on the addition, Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger said: "Thomas is a player we have liked for some time. We've watched him closely this season, where he has excelled for Dortmund's youth team. He is young but has proven to us that he can play, that he has the attitude and technical ability to be a valuable addition to our squad. We're very pleased to welcome him to the club and look forward to his contribution in the coming seasons."
