Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech has admitted he was left dejected when he was denied a move to Arsenal four years ago, but is now delighted the transfer to Highbury didn't materialise.

Cech ultimately went on to join French outfit Rennes before completely a big-money move to Stamford Bridge last summer.
