Despite reports that Petr Cech’s deal to Arsenal was complete, Sky Sports have revealed it’s far from it, with a medical not due until next week.

In a transfer phenomenon not seen since we were supposed to sign… well just about anyone we’re ever linked with, Cech is apparently going to sign with for the 60th time. This time, it’s thought to be next week.

Although Sky Sports believe a deal has been reached between the player and club in principle, the goalkeeper hasn’t yet had his all-important medical with us.

With all of this to-ing and fro-ing, I can’t help but have a little bit of a sinking feeling that someone (i.e. Jose Mourinho) will pull the plug on this last minute, or Cech will come out himself and claim he’s not even spoken with us, which would just be plain rude at this stage.

We’ll see how things pan out next week and if this apparent medical does go ahead.
