Barcelona seal deal for Arsenal defender Vermaelen

Arsenal have agreed a fee of about £15m with Barcelona for the sale of captain Thomas Vermaelen, reports BBC Sport. The 28-year-old Belgium centre-back must now agree personal terms with the Catalan giants and pass a medical.

Vermaelen was a target for Manchester United but they ended their interest after refusing Arsenal's demand to receive a player as part of the deal.
