West Bromwich Albion have completed the signing of Kieran Gibbs from Arsenal for an undisclosed fee.

The 27-year-old left-back has signed a four-year contract at The Hawthorns, bringing an end to a long spell at Arsenal.

He spent 14 years with the Gunners, making more than 200 appearances for the club and also winning 10 England caps.

In a post on Twitter, Gibbs thanked Arsenal for his “amazing journey” during his time with the club and said he was looking forward to a “new chapter” in his career following his move to the West Midlands.

And he told West Brom’s official website: “I watched the boys in the first few games of the season and they’ve got a lot of energy. They’ve made some good signings and I feel this is a good move for me.”

Watford were interested in Gibbs and a number of other clubs have been linked with him in the last year or so.

Albion chairman John Williams believes his club have made a quality signing.

Williams said: “I’m delighted to welcome Kieran to the club.

“We have recruited another quality addition, an England player with bags of experience at Premier League and Champions League level. We are confident he will do well for us.”
