Arsenal complete loan signing of Kim Kallstrom
Sweden international Kim Kallstrom has completed his loan move to Arsenal.
The 31-year-old has joined on a six-month loan form Russian side Spartak Moscow.
The former Lyon star told the club’s official website: “Arsenal is an amazing club with a lot of great players and a coach who has done really well here for a long time.
“I am so pleased to come here to learn as much as possible.
“I’m here to do my best for Arsenal and to help out the team, so we can achieve good results for the last part of the season.”
Manager Arsene Wenger was pleased to capture the left-footed veteran, who currently looks like being the Gunners’ only deadline day signing.
He said: “Kim Kallstrom is a hugely-experienced player. He is a midfielder with proven quality at both club and international level. We welcome Kim to Arsenal.”
Kallstrom is eligible to feature in Arsenal’s Champions League games despite having featured in the Europa League for Spartak earlier this season.
