Barca agree Ozil deal

While we're on the subject of Arsenal's future transfer window dealings, it was reported on Tuesday that although the deal for Mesut Ozil has been done, some board members are not in agreement about the 29-year-old's potential. It is hard to admit but the Catalan club are a much more appealing outfit than us and I reckon Ozil would snap their hands off.

Fenerbahce have been closely linked with Ozil for the past few seasons.

Following Arsenal's 2-0 win over Tottenham on Saturday, Wenger admitted he was unable to guarantee that Ozil would remain an Arsenal player by the end of January. The situation is clear. They can have bad games but the problem is when the player goes to the end of his contract, everyone says: 'Of course.' Their interest is to play anyway.

"If the club want them to stay beyond December [the January transfer window] they will follow". The 27-year-old said on Tuesday he was "surprised" not to be called up and added: "You don't play for one of the biggest clubs in the world for as long as I have ...without being able to do everything a top defender needs to do". "It is other people who are the ones who have to make a decision".

The prospect of signing Ozil looks far more valuable in comparison. It took him a while to settle in, but in his last four games in the Premier League, he's tallied a goal and three assists.

Ontario college faculty return to work after legislation ends five-week strike
A similar tuition rebate was offered to students after a strike in 2006 shuttered Ontario colleges for 18 days. Legislation to end the college strike , has passed at Queen's Park today.

The star is set to move to the Spanish side for £17million and is demanding a £330,000-a-week salary, according to reports.

The latest reports however, suggest that the 2014 World Cup victor could be on the move.

Should Arsenal agree to Ozil's demands, he could re-sign, but if Barcelona are prepared to stump up €370,000-per-week, the Germany worldwide probably won't hesitate to leave.

Wow. Ozil's demands are very steep and given Barcelona's financial resources have been drained by Lionel Messi's new £500,000-per-week deal, they probably can't afford him.
