Done Deal + Picture Proof: Club confirm the signing of 27-year old star man

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.

But Kieran is now ready to embrace a new challenge. He says: “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.”

Watford are close to signing Kieran Gibbs  according to reports.

Gibbs was the subject of interest from a host of Premier League clubs this summer but none of them were able to agree a fee with the Gunners.

Watford were first to register their interest in the defender but pulled out of negotiations due to Arsenal’s high valuation but they have now returned for Gibbs after the Gunners indicated they are willing to negotiate a lower fee.

According to Sky Sports, Watford and Arsenal have reached an agreement over the transfer of the defender.

Both clubs resumed negotiations a fortnight ago and have quickly reached an agreement that we see the defender join the Hornets permanently.

Gibbs is reportedly keen on the move and that could have played a crucial part in the swift negotiations.

After rejecting a £10m bid from West Brom last month, Gibbs isn’t expected to cost Watford less than that even though Arsenal had to reduce its asking price.

The move brings an end to an eleven year union between Gibbs and Arsenal. The England international lost his place in the starting xi to Nacho Monreal two seasons ago and never looked capable of winning it back.

Galatasaray could make a move for Kieran Gibbs before the transfer window closes this week.

Gibbs has found himself out of Wenger’s plans and has been told to find a new club but he has been unsuccessful in doing that because of Arsenal’s valuation and also his reluctance to take a pay-cut.

Several clubs have been interested in Gibbs but Galatasaray could now make the race tougher by registering their Interest in the defender.

According to the Times via the Daily Cannon, the Turkish giants are only willing to pay up to £4m for the defender.

That is way short of Arsenal’s valuation for the defender. The Gunners rejected a £10m bid from West Brom last month, so it is impossible they will now accept Gala’s low-ball offer.

Leaving the Premier League may not even appeal to Gibbs who has been at Arsenal since he was 14.

A club that can’t even table a good offer will definitely not be able to meet the players financial demands, meaning it is almost impossible that Gibbs will be making a move to Turkey.

He is still expected to leave the Emirates before the transfer window closes next Thursday, with Watford Newcastle and West Brom still lurking around to sign him.
