After his sulking display on the Far Easr tour when he was subbed off, Denilson will now be leaving Arsenal. It may not be on a permanent deal where we get cash from selling him but he will be off on loan back to Brazil for the duration of next season. The midfielder will be joining his former club Sao Paulo.
Denilson told Arsenal’s official website: “I will be playing in Brazil next season as I felt that this is a good opportunity for me to play regular first-team football.
“I move away with sadness because I have so many friends at Arsenal and everyone has always been so supportive towards me.
“I want to say thank you to the club, and of course, also a big thank you to all the Arsenal fans who are very special.
“I’m now focused on doing well in Brazil next season, but will always be looking out for the Arsenal results. It is a great Club with many great players, a good team spirit and a top-class manager. I wish you well for next season.”
