It is official now!
So, a few days ago we had a post about Jens Lehmann and the possibility of his return to Emirates Stadium this season in order to ease the shortage of senior goalkeepers in Arsène Wenger’s squad. Today we can say for sure the German keeper has rejoined Arsenal on a monthly rolling contract until the end of the season.
Jens Lehmann is a great short-term signing for us and will be a valuable asset during a crucial time of the season. Jens has kept himself very fit during this season and will provide quality back-up to Manuel Almunia. Jens knows the Club very well, is vastly experienced and will also be an extremely positive influence in the dressing room during his time with us: Arsène Wenger.
The club’s official website reports Lehmann has already been training with the first team squad this week and is available for selection for the Premier League match at West Bromwich Albion on Saturday.
