The Herald - Sport - - FOOTBALL -

PETR CECH has com­pleted his pro­tracted move to Ar­se­nal on a longterm con­tract for an undis­closed fee fol­low­ing 11 sea­sons and nearly 500 ap­pear­ances with Lon­don ri­vals Chelsea.

The 33-year-old has been one of the main­stays of the Ro­man Abramovich era at Stam­ford Bridge, win­ning nearly ev­ery club hon­our with the Blues along the way.

Hav­ing been a reg­u­lar for 10 years, he found his play­ing time lim­ited last sea­son, los­ing his first-team spot to Thibaut Cour­tois.

While Ar­se­nal have not dis­closed the length of the con­tract or fee, re­port­edly Cech has been signed for £10m and has penned a four-year deal.

“I have the same com­mit­ment to football, the same mo­ti­va­tion and the same hunger for suc­cess as I had at the be­gin­ning of my ca­reer,” said Cech.
