BARCELONA has mysteriously deleted an article on their website which claimed Denis Suarez had completed a loan move to Arsenal.

At around 5pm, Barcelona released a statement on their website which said: "FC Barcelona and Denis Suarez have reached an agreement for the extension of the player’s contract with the club, which ended on 30 June 2020, until 30 June 2021.

"FC Barcelona have also agreed a loan deal for Suárez with Arsenal for the remainder of the 2018/19 season.

"The Premier League club will pay the player’s salary during this time and the agreement includes an option to buy.

"The Galician midfielder puts an end to his second spell at Bar?a after featuring for Bar?a B in the 2013/14 season and for the first team since the summer of 2016.

But around half an hour later the article had been removed from Barcelona’s website and Arsenal were yet to confirm the deal themselves.

Suarez arrived in London earlier today for a medical and to put pen to paper on the deal which keeps him at the Emirates until the end of the season.

Meanwhile, Arsenal legend David Seaman feels the club are making a mistake by signing a midfielder over defensive additions.

Arsenal were without three senior central defenders in the win over Cardiff and Nacho Monreal was forced to deputise in that position.

The Gunners have been linked with Chelsea defender Gary Cahill but manager Unai Emery has stated his desire to sign forward players.

And Seaman says he is growing frustrated by Arsenal defensive woes.

Seaman told talkSPORT: “We don’t need midfielders, we need defenders.

“We’ve got big injuries to quite a few of them already, we need good defenders coming in.

“Emery knows him [Suarez] and likes what he sees, but for me we’re crying out for defenders.

“We’re great going forward, but what’s happening with the defence? It’s just not got any better all season. At the moment it’s not working. It’s frustrating.”
