Arsenal refuse to change transfer policy

Arsenal chief executive, Ivan Gazidis, says that the club will not be changing their transfer policy amidst the early-season turmoil, and will always put youth first.

The criticism falls after the North London outfit sold superstars, Cesc Fabregas and Samir Nasri, only to bring in Yossi Benayoun and Mikel Arteta as replacements.

Some supporters of the club are calling forbig money signatures, as majority shareholder, Stan Kroenke, said there would be, however Gazidis stands firm on his ideals.

The businessman said: “We know we can’t go out and compete with the spending that’s out there and frankly, if we did, it would just push the spending to another level so it wouldn’t be a successful strategy.”

Commenting on the criticism of Kroenke, Gazidis added: “The Silent Stan moniker is overused. The truth is that Stan is not silent. He has been very involved throughout and for a number of years with the club. He is not media adverse either – at the right time he will come and speak.”
