England international defender Kieran Gibbs has joined West Bromwich Albion from Arsenal for an undisclosed fee and have signed a four-year deal.

The 27-year-old left-back joins the Baggies on a four-year deal and has elected to wear the No. 3 shirt.

Gibbs joins the Baggies after spending more than a decade at Arsenal – where he made over 200 appearances for the Gunners – and with ten England caps to his name.

Gibbs said he is ready for a new challenge at Albion. “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.”

Albion Chairman John Williams says: “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.”

Albion’s summer transfer window business has now seen Gibbs, Oliver Burke, Gareth Barry, Ahmed Hegazi and Jay Rodriguez join their squad for this season’s Premier League challenge.

The Baggies have also signed China international striker Yuning Zhang who has started a two-year loan to Werder Bremen.
