Kallstrom linked up with the Gunners from the Muscovite giants during the January transfer window despite being hampered by a serious back injury.

Wenger did praise the Swede’s attitude in training recently, though, and named him on the bench for the side’s clash with West Bromwich Albion this weekend, bringing him on as a substitute in the 63rd minute of their 1-0 victory.

The 31-year-old has helped Arsenal to finish fourth in the Premier League this season, while his parent club, Spartak Moscow, currently sit sixth in the Russian Premier League table.

However, when asked about the player’s future in the post match press conference, Wenger said via his club’s official website: “He is on loan, so he belongs to Moscow and will go back to Moscow.”

Kallstrom joined for Spartak Moscow back in 2012 from French giants Lyon and has gone on to make 39 appearances for the club, scoring three goals.
