Arsenal Sign Danny Welbeck Away From Manchester United
The latest shakeup in the Premier League involves 23-year-old English star Danny Welbeck, who has signed with Arsenal, after playing most of his career with Manchester United. Welbeck joined United's academy at age 8, so it's a major move to leave the club. He's the second forward to leave Man U on deadline day after Javier Hernandez joined Real Madrid on loan. More details, from BBC Sport:
Arsenal have signed Manchester United forward Danny Welbeck for £16m.
The 23-year-old, capped 26 times by England, has signed a "long-term deal" at the Emirates Stadium.
"Everyone at Arsenal welcomes Danny to the club and looks forward to his contribution in an Arsenal shirt this season," a club statement read.
Welbeck, who scored 29 goals in 142 United appearances, was told he could leave given the impending arrival of Radamel Falcao on loan from Monaco.
Arsenal announced the signing via the club's official Twitter account on Monday:
And you can already cop a "Welbeck" Gunners jersey via the team's website, too. Good luck, Danny!
