Loanee triggers clause to end his affiliation with Arsenal FC

Dinos Mavropanos’s move from Arsenal to VFB Stuttgart has been sealed after a clause in his loan deal was triggered today.

The defender has a simple clause in his loan deal that meant that he would seal a permanent move to the Bundesliga side if they were to avoid relegation this season.

While that may have seemed a formality originally, it proved to be anything but that, needing to overturn a three-point deficit today to claw their way to safety.

It was a roller-coaster ride for their fans, with their side taking a 1-0 lead in the opening half, only for Hertha Berlin to also take the lead over Borussia Dortmund, and going into the last 10 minutes of play, both games were tied at 1-1. The BVB did their job by taking the lead on the 84th minute, while Mavropanos’s side had to wait until injury time to find their winner, which means they climbed out of the drop zone agonisingly late.

It is a shame that Dinos never a fair chance in north London, despite showing plenty of promise after his initial move to the club.

A number of clubs around Europe are claimed to be keen on his signature, so it is uncertain whether his current side will keep him going into the new season or whether they will cash-in for a tidy profit, but our Β£2.5 Million fee is already agreed as part of his loan deal as reported by HITC.

Will Mavropanos find his way to play for a top European club in the future?

  1. Massive flaw in our recruitment process and should be address immediately.
    So as not to have a repeat.

  2. Thought this would never happen again, once Gazidis and his three musketeers took over!!!
    There’s more to come as well, our transfer policy is absolutely S##T.

    1. Ken do you notice how Gazidis was a villain amongst arsenal fans but not a word is spoken about Edu and Vinai

      1. Indeed I do Kev82 – do you think it’s a conspiracy? πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

        1. Haha Ken it’s looking that way πŸ˜‚ I’ve even had fans arguing with me about Kroenke – now all of a sudden Kroenke is a great owner ? This ultra positivity these fans are showing is a bit nauseating.

  3. I’m sure the deal has a sell-on clause -for when Bayern come calling!
    The fee is disappointing, surely we could’ve got more? Selling for peanuts/giving away for nothing – when will it end?

      1. Yo, Kev! I am, you obviously are – who do you think has been the better side? 5 weeks today I’ll be there – Harry Styles πŸ˜„

        1. You’d have to say Liverpool but Chelsea still looking dangerous on the counter but Lukaku is useless πŸ˜‚ I’d didn’t take you for a pop fan Sue πŸ˜„

          1. He was awful, Kev. No sign of Kepa yet… It’s for my daughter – I have a funny feeling I’ll be the oldest one there 🀣

            1. How much did they pay for him again? πŸ˜‚. Is this going to pens and is kepa gonna come on again? Lol. You’ll be a contender that’s for sure πŸ˜‚ nah they’ll be loads of mother’s taking there daughters Sue πŸ˜„

              1. I’m not saying anything – I’ll jinx it!!
                ‘A contender’ that made me roar with laughter!! Cheeky sod 🀣🀣

                1. Pens again Sue πŸ˜„ hahaha well your only as old as you feel πŸ˜„ I’m guessing your not going to the Florida cup ? πŸ˜‚

                    1. Man City better win tomorrow Sue I can’t be dealing with this quadruple talk πŸ˜† Benzema needs to have his shooting boots on in the CL final also πŸ˜„

                    2. I’m absolutely soaked bloody shower playing up πŸ˜‚ do you think they win it Sue πŸ˜‘ big games tomorrow come on Burnley 🀞

                    3. No, absolutely not (could I have jinxed it?!) Probably have to suffer a treble instead… ugh…

                      If anyone can, Cornet can πŸ˜‰

                      Bet you look like a Baywatch extra 🀣

                    4. If West ham win tomorrow it’s game on but I think citys goal difference will win it if it goes to last day πŸ˜„ haha or a late tarkowski screamer πŸ˜‚ haha unless Baywatch extras wear jeans and tshirts I doubt it πŸ˜† job for a plumber I think Sue 😢

                    5. Apparently (golden boy) Kane is the PL’s all-time highest scorer on a Sunday (69)…
                      I hope Bowen scores, but De Bruyne to bag a brace (or more) – FPL team!!
                      How do you think our window will go?

                    6. How’s your FPL going Sue ? I never do it πŸ˜„ yeah obviously yeah obviously he might score πŸ˜† well I think we are getting that young Scottish guy from bologna so that’s positive he looks good I would like to see moussa diaby kinda reminds me of Sadio Mane and very skillful πŸ˜„ any holiday plans this year Sue, sun sea and sangria? πŸ˜†

                    7. Not too bad; Captained KDB last week – loadsa points!! The only trouble is I replace someone – they score! Typical
                      Hope it’ll be a busy one, Kev – incoming and outgoings. That American defender will go on loan right? We might sign Lewandowski πŸ˜„
                      Nowt as of yet, Kev, still looking.. NYC next year! How about yourself? Florida, to watch Arsenal v Everton? πŸ˜‰

                    8. Where do you play it ? And what do you win πŸ˜‚ yeah KDB scoring 4 goals πŸ˜„ any Arsenal players in it ? Do you mean Trusty ? Tavares should be sold this summer I know people rate him and he’s young but I just don’t see it and Lokonga also he’s bang average. Hahaha Arteta would fall out with him after one training session πŸ˜‚ maybe that’s why he signs youngsters he can’t deal with older players πŸ˜›oh you’ll love NY if you do manage to go πŸ˜„ haha not a chance, nowhere Sue, I can’t afford it unfortunately, it’ll be a long boring summer work, sleep work that’s about it πŸ™‚

                    9. It’s on the PL app.. I’ve no idea, I don’t take it as seriously as some. Think you should get on it – look at how good you are on here! Piece of cake!! πŸ˜‰
                      I have Martinelli/Eddie right now…
                      Someone from Portugal on another site said he wouldn’t pay Β£1 for Tavares 😬 Yes Trusty..
                      Linked with Hazard – knew that’d please you haha!
                      Not even a short break? You may need one to get over the stress of this season!

                    10. You should check you could be in line for a fortune πŸ˜‰ haha there’s people out there that live for football and would wipe the floor with me 🀣 you have big Ed in there ? Martinelli has like 1 goal in 4 months πŸ˜„ I’d agree I see a guy with pace and not much else no footballing brain and a calamity at the back 😢 we will never see Trusty I would bet on it haha. But he might find his muse at Arsenal don’t you think? πŸ˜‰ Sue if I needed a break after a difficult season supporting Arsenal my passport would have more stamps than Phileas Fogg πŸ˜†

                    11. Gabi hasn’t done too badly, maybe time for a change though! I only just put Eddie in (after Leeds).. Don’t give me that, you’d wipe the floor with most!
                      Phileas Fogg – that’s brilliant 🀣 Such a funny chap!
                      Well, Kev, it’s been a pleasure, as always.. let’s hope tomorrow will be a good day ⚽️ Night night xx

                    12. Eddie needs to find a way past the toon on Monday night or it’s gonna be that annoying Europa league theme next season again 😢 haha there’s a fella I work with and he’s literally a football encyclopedia that man could tell you about teams in the Albanian league 🀣 you have to be humourous supporting Arsenal or you’d cry right? πŸ˜„ It certainly has been and I hope you are right 🀞 Night Night Sue sleep well xx

  4. Absolutely the worst business, I have ever heard of unless there is a significant sell-on clause.
    His MV according transfer market is 17M.

  5. Rob holding, dino and guendouzi should have been kept even if sir Alex furguson, Arsene wanger, Max allegri were at Arsenal.
    Management should not think that our predicessor were wrong to have them because things are turning and in a mean time they will look shortminded and foolish.
    Edu must do somthing
    We don’t want dictators in arsenal

  6. A paltry and pitiful 2.5M for a talented, young defender. But still, there a faint sign of progress: he didn’t leave for free.

  7. Shambles and disgraceful negotiations on Arsenal’s part. Hard to do a worse deal than a paltry 2.5 million, for Mavro.

    We’re getting mugged left and right on players leaving, Mavro, Guendouzi, Auba, taking candy from a baby.

    What a job, losing money repeatedly for Arsenal and still have a job.

    1. It can only lead to misery in the long run. You have to have a business that doesn’t waste money to progress in the long run.
