The 30-year-old did not live up to expectations at Emirates Stadium after arriving from Fenerbahce in 2011 and secured a temporary return to Brazil in February.

Santos enjoyed his time at Gremio but the club could not afford any permanent deal and so he has admitted his disappointment at having to go back to Arsenal.

He told Radio Gre-Nal: "My loan deal is over. It was six months long and now I am returning. Gremio had an agreement with Arsenal and I have to return."

Santos added: "I wanted to stay. Gremio were fair regarding everything. I felt well there and I wanted to win a title before leaving.

"Unfortunately there is no deal and I had to return to Arsenal."

still can't see the Phil Jones thing that some people go on about. Whenever I watch him play it's a repeat of headless chicken meets a gurning Bambi on ice for 90 minutes.

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
