Arsenal to unveil 'The New Vieira'?

Last updated : 12 January 2006 By Chris Parry
It would appear that the French U-21 international midfielder is on the brink of signing a four year contract, with the blessing of his current club.

''The player chose Arsenal and Auxerre, who are not used to breaking players' careers, has agreed with the club" said the Auxerra Vice-President.

Diaby had apparently rejected overtures from the West London circus act, saying that he wanted to join a football club instead - Very refreshing.

So has Arsene discovered a rough diamond that can be polished into the new Vieira? - Let's wait and see.
