Zenit St Petersburg star Andrei Arshavin insists he is still waiting to be told if he will be allowed to join Arsenal.

The Russia playmaker has made now secret of his desire to leave the Uefa Cup holders and Arsenal have been holding drawn-out negotiations.

Arshavin, who is believed to be valued at £18million, has previously stated that the final decision on his future lies with his club and he maintains that stance.

The 27-year-old is reportedly set to join the Gunners on Monday night, but he has yet to hear from the Zenit hierarchy.

"I am waiting for a final decision," Arshavin told Sport Express.

"The talks don't depend on me. I haven't been in touch with the club management, so I haven't heard a clear 'yes' or 'no' yet."
