Arsenal have added to their backroom staff with two key personnel appointed to their medical and legal departments.

Huss Fahmy has joined the club to work alongside transfer negotiator Dick Law on player contracts, while fitness expert Darren Burgess is set to link up with the Gunners next month.

Arsenal chief executive Ivan Gazidis stressed last season that a backroom reshuffle was a possibility after a disappointing Premier League campaign saw the club finish fifth and miss out on Champions League qualification.

It was originally suspected that a thorough overhaul of the current working set-up would be put into place, but manager Arsene Wenger was adamant he would not work alongside a figurehead in a role such as director of football.
