Arsenal chief Edelman: Major funds available for summer market

Arsenal managing director Keith Edelman says major funds are available for the summer market.

Edelman has confirmed the club's robust finances will be used to keep Arsene Wenger's team in equally rude health.

"We've got no plans to make any dividends to shareholders so all resources will be retained within the business.

"Clearly we've got ample cash in the balance sheet to make additions to the squad if that's what the manager wants to do," said Edelman.

"We're having a good season. Our objectives are to play good football, to win honours and to make a profit. At the moment we're pretty happy with where we are in terms of those.

"No-one has actually asked us to start paying dividends, it's far too early for us to be doing that.

"We need to invest in the business and in the team. The squad, that's our first port of call."
