Former Arsenal midfielder Mathieu Flamini has returned to Emirates Stadium on a free transfer.
The 29-year-old France international,
who spent four years at the Gunners from 2004 to 2008,
was released by AC Milan in the summer.
Flamini's Arsenal career
- Joined on 23 July 2004 from Marseille
- He made his league debut in the 4-1 win over Everton on 15 August as a substitute
- He went on to make 102 league appearances scoring seven goals
- He also made 31 appearances in Europe for the Gunners and played in the 2006 Champions League final where he came on as a second half substitute
- He won just one piece of silverware - the FA Cup in May 2005
Flamini had been training with the north London club in recent weeks.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger said: "He is a player of real quality, with a fantastic work rate and great mentality."
"He can play as a defensive midfielder or provide cover for first-choice full-backs Bacary Sagna and Kieran Gibbs.
"As we know, Mathieu is a strong midfielder, but is also comfortable playing in defence too. He is a very good addition to our squad."
Capped three times, he made 102 league appearances during his first spell in London
after joining the club from Marseille.
