Arsenal Sign Nikolay Dimitrov… to replace Hleb?

Nikolay is a left winger and can play on the right too if required. His fee is £700k but may rise to £1.1 million depending on appearances.

I've heard this from 7 different sources, and the details were supposed published in Bulgaria's newspaper, "The Sofia Echo" yesterday, but I can't find the story on their website. All their site seems to do is talk about Berbatov and Barcelona?!?!

Nikolay had previously had a two week trial under Arsene’s supervision, and impressed. We were close to signing him then, but looks like we have sewn up the deal before the summer.

The kid said (translated):

“Its so exciting. The coaching staff are very kind and Arsenal are a very good team with good young player. I hope to lead Arsenal to as much silverware as possible.”

In February this year, Nikolay had made his debut for Bulgaria’s first team and made quite an impression…

Just waiting for Arsenal.com to confirm the transfer…]]>

    < ![CDATA[I've read several sources that state that Nikolay Dimitriov has signed for Osasuna CF.
    It may be inaccurate seeing as though its Wikipedia but I have a strange feeling theres some truth to it.]]>
