In the news today:

Speculation that Arsenal were interested in making a move for their former reserve team player, Seb Larsson, seems wide of the mark after the midfielder all but agreed to join Sunderland.

The Swedish international has been linked with a return to Arsenal where he’d be likely to be used as a utility player, providing strong back-up to the first-team. However, first-team football has swung the former Birmingham City player to the north-east where he’ll link up with ex-boss, Steve Bruce once again.

The player’s agent and father, Svante Larsson, told Sport Folket: “Sunderland have been on really hard since January. Steve Bruce has done much to bring about a deal and been very active.

“Sebastian along the way pointed out Sunderland as a distinct possibility. We have turned every stone and weighed the pros and cons.

“[The] Parties agree on the economic conditions and what remains is to agree on the length of the contract.

“They want a little longer and we want less. But I think there will be no problems.”
