Arsenal FC new signing Thomas Partey has recorded a message for the club’s supporters ahead of his official unveiling next week.

The Gunners coughed up £45 million to secure the services of the Black Stars deputy skipper from Atlético Madrid on transfer deadline day.

In a brief message, he said: “hello Gunners, thanks so much for the love, for the messages I’ve received. I can’t wait to be part of you guys, I can’t wait to join the team.

“It’s a great feeling to be part of a family like this. Thanks 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,” he said in a video tweeted by the club.

The 27 year old put pen to paper on a five-year contract that will keep him at the Emirates stadium until June 2025.

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