By now, it's inevitable that Petr Cech is going to remain in London with Arsenal. On Friday, The Guardian (and many other outlets) are reporting that the Czech keeper is at the Arsenal facilities, having his medical ahead of an £11 million move.

Cech has had some nagging injuries over the past several years, but nothing that's kept him from playing for any extended period of time. I'd be hesitant to believe that these ailments would cause him any issues with the Gunners, however, as they once passed a player on a short-term loan who arrived with a broken vertebrae.

With personal terms agreed and the clubs having reportedly settled on a fee, the medical appears to be the last formality before the player puts pen to paper, though he'll have to wait until July 1 to be officially registered with Arsenal. Unfortunately, it's looking like a sad day to be a Chelsea fan.
