Arsenal midfielder, Tomas Rosicky is set for a passionate and tear-jerking return to boyhood club Sparta Prague, 15 years since leaving.
Rosicky has been training with Arsenal over the weeks in an attempt to overcome a thigh injury that he sustained while playing for Czech at Euro 2016.
The 35-year old midfielder is now set to be confirmed as a Sparta player at a press conference later this afternoon.
Transfer news expert Ondrej Zlámal [@UEFAcomOndrejZ] tweeted: “Tomás Rosický is going to return to his first club @ACSparta_EN Press conf. announced for the afternoon. @EuropaLeague.”
Rosicky spent a decade at Arsenal, having moved from Borussia Dortmund in 2006. The silky Czech midfielder has bagged 28 goals in 246 appearances for the Gunners.
Arsenal said their goodbye to Rosický on the final day of last season where he was presented with a silver cannon and a guard of honour to recognise his significant contributions towards the club.
As Arsenal fans wish Rosický best of luck at Sparta, they sure will be keeping a close eye on his performances for the Czech outfit.
The Gunners will welcome Southampton to the Emirates after the international break, hoping to continue their winning run – after claiming their first victory of the Premier League campaign against Watford.
