Ex-Arsenal chief Dein expects Van Persie drama to drag on

Former Arsenal chief David Dein doesn't expect a swift conclusion to the Robin van Persie saga.

Dein insists the Van Persie situation will drag on.

He said: "I think he will be there for the start of training. What happens after that remains to be seen.

"Once a player comes out and says what he did in his recent article, it is normally the prelude to a departure. But there is no doubt Arsenal will do everything they can to try to keep him and make sure he sees out his last year."
