The Ghana Football Association has congratulated midfielder Thomas Partey after completing his transfer deadline day move to Arsenal FC.

The Black Stars deputy skipper joined the Gunners on a long-term contract after agreeing to meet the €50 million buyout amount in his Atlético Madrid contract.

”Congratulations @Thomaspartey22 👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾 on your new challenge. Continue making Make Ghana proud🙌🏾” the GFA posted on Twitter.

The 27 year old’s addition will be a major boost to coach Mikel Arteta, who has been desperate to add to his midfield options.

Partey is expected to join up with his new team-mates next week after he returns from international duty with Ghana.
