Having been an Arsenal supporter since he was a child, and after joined the club in 2004 at the age of 14, Kieran Gibbs today left after 229 appearances to sign for West Brom.
The England international is now 27, and has signed a 4 year deal with the Baggies, but used his Twitter account to send a message of thanks to the club he spent so many years at.
“First I would like to say how delighted I am to sign for West Brom,” he said.
“It has been an amazing journey to play for my childhood club since I was 14. I would like to thank Arsene Wenger for giving me the chance to start my career and fulfil a dream.
“Thank you to all the fans, the Arsenal staff and especially my teammates who have been there during the special moments and have helped me through some tough times.
“Now it’s time for the next chapter with West Bromwich Albion and …” blah blah, we don’t need to read the rest.
As we said earlier, best of luck to him at his new club, coincidentally where he had one of his most memorable moments in an Arsenal shirt just a few short years ago.
