It appears that Ajax defender Jurrien Timber is on the verge of completing a move to Arsenal, following an agreement reached between the two clubs.
The accidental announcement of the signing came from Timber’s brother, who posted a picture on Instagram showing a farewell party held for the player.
The image featured Timber’s photo on a board wearing an Arsenal shirt, along with a caption: “Jurrien’s Goodbye party! See you in the streets of London.”
The post was eventually deleted perhaps after they realised they are not supposed to announce until it is officially announced by the clubs.
