Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has appeared to suggest that the Gunners will not move to sign midfielder Kim Kallstrom on a permanent basis.

Kallstrom joined Arsenal on loan from Spartak Moscow in January, signing for the club despite being injured with a back problem.

Wenger has praised the Swedish international's attitude, but only named him on the bench in today's 1-0 win over West Brom, bringing the midfielder on in the 63rd minute.

Asked post-match about Kallstrom's future, Wenger said via his club's site: "He is on loan, so he belongs to Moscow and will go back to Moscow."


The 31-year-old has helped Arsenal to finish fourth in the Premier League this season, while his parent club, Spartak Moscow, currently sit sixth in the Russian Premier League table.

Kallstrom signed for Spartak Moscow in 2012, joining the Russian outfit from Lyon.
