As the transfer window reopens on January 1st and the future of Theo Walcott at Arsenal still undecided, the saga took a development today when Theo put his house in Hertfordshire up for sale.
Speculation mounted that Walcott was going to live in a caravan on Canvey Island next door to Freddie Eastwood, after pictures of him and an unshaven man appeared on twitter. The England player later played down the caravan story by telling a close friend that he planned to buy a house and it would be in the middle of the street, rather than the right hand side.
Walcott is currently celebrating a purple patch in the gunners team, having scored 10 goals in 10 games, including two hat-tricks, the first in a 7-5 win over Reading, and the second v Newcastle in a 7-3 win.
The former Saint told his friend that he likes the house number 9 - although after recent results 7 is also quite lucky. A spokesman for Arsenal refused to confirm that Thierry Henry was moving into Theo's old house.
