Arsenal’s principal transfer negotiator, Dick Law, has decided to step down from his position.
The Daily Telegraph revealed in February, that Law’s long-term future at the club was in doubt and a club spokesman confirmed on Friday night, that he would officially leave at the end of the month.
He is understood to be returning to his native America for family reasons, after working closely with manager Arsene Wenger for the past eight years.
Although it is not certain if Law would be replaced, the Gunners hired former Team Sky legal and commercial expert, Huss Fahmy, to work on player contracts this summer.
The chief executive, Ivan Gazidis, has now taken up an office at the London Colney training ground, which perhaps indicates he intends to take a more hands-on role with the football operation.
Gazidis has always spent a lot of time at Colney, but has now set up an office there, while retaining his base at Highbury House at the Emirates Stadium.
