Arshavin Could Be With Arsenal For The Long Haul

Andrey Arshavin has hinted that he may well stay at Arsenal until the end of his career.
Andrey Arshavin arrived at the Emirates stadium during the January transfer window with the acquisition of the playmaker seeming like a long overdue addition for most Gunners fans.

After a long and drawn out transfer saga, the Russian finally made the switch from Zenit St. Petersburg, penning a deal with Arsenal that ties him to the north London club for three-and-a-half years.

Since his arrival at the club, Arshavin has impressed any unconvinced fans by adding some much needed flair to Arsenal's attack - something that had been lacking due to the influx of injured players.

In light of all of this, the 27-year-old has spoken fondly of his short time spent at the club so far, and hinted that he might play out the remainder of his career at the Emirates.

"The players have been friendly, I feel comfortable with the team," he told Sky Sports News.

"It is too early to make any conclusions, since little time has past, but my contract is long enough."

"It will probably last until the end of my career."
