The Arsenal have announced a major signing that has been endorsed by club captain Thomas Vermaelen.
Both exiles from the Ajax school of football.
A defensive midfielder and Dutch international, only six games short of the 100 club, they will bring added steel to the centre of the park, complimenting the already expressive midfield unit and will further add manpower to our historic challenge for the treble.
Having also previously had two spells at FC Utrecht, they also bring a wealth of European experience to the team.
So welcome, Anouk Hoogendijk
