“Hello, Gunners!” he told Arsenal’s official Instagram channel. “Thanks so much for the love, for the messages I’ve received.

“It’s a great feeling to be part of a family like this. Thanks so much to everyone for the love, I feel so grateful and I feel so amazed to be part of you.
“I can’t wait to join you guys.
“And don’t forget, no Thomas, no Partey!”
Partey has also updated his Instagram profile page to show he’s an Arsenal player.
Speaking after the deal was confirmed, manager Mikel Arteta has told Arsenal fans what to expect from the new £45m signing.
“We identified him a few months ago and we have been following his progress, and obviously the more you know about the squad, you know more about where you think you can improve it,” Arteta told Arsenal.com.
