Kit manufacturer adidas will release a vintage Arsenal shirt at the end of the season following their takeover as the club's new supplier.

Adidas haven't supplied Arsenal's matchday shirts since 1994, but fans have been crying out for the German company to take over once again thanks to their popular designs throughout the late 20th century.

To commemorate their return to north London, adidas will release a special retro kit which will be called the 'Arsenal Icon Jersey' and leaked pictures of the shirt have already been doing the rounds on social media.

The long sleeve shirt will be released in a signature yellow colour, with monochromatic Arsenal and adidas logos placed at the top of the kit.

The most striking part about the leaked shirt is three large black stripes which go across the torso of the shirt. This addition hasn't gone down too well with the select few Gunners who have seen the leaked photos, and it's unknown why this addition has been made to the shirt.

Footy Headlines confirm that there isn't a known retail price for the shirt just yet, but that it will hit the shelves during the summer.

The adidas takeover at Arsenal will see the club pocket the third biggest kit sponsorship deal around, sitting behind only Manchester United and Real Madrid.

There is a five-year contract in place which will see the Gunners earn £300m - or £60m a year.
