One of the latest deals to be completed on transfer deadline day on Monday was Arsenal’s £16m signing of Danny Welbeck from Manchester United.
Welbeck is a product of the youth academy at Old Trafford and other than loan spells with Preston North End and Sunerland, has played for the Red Devils for his whole career.
Yet in his first interview since becoming a Gunners player the 23-year-old says he has no regrets at leaving United and couldn’t be happier to have moved to North London.
“It’s exciting times for me. It’s great to be a part of this club and it’s a team that I’ve always watched in the Premier League,” Welbeck told the club’s website.
“I’ve envisaged myself playing in this team before. For it to finally happen is very exciting.
“I’ve been at United ever since I was a little boy and I had a great time there. I just think this is the next stage of my development
“Things move on in life and I think you’ve really got to make the right decision in the situation that you’re in at that moment in time. I really do believe that coming to Arsenal is the right decision.”
Welbeck is currently away on international duty with England, although won’t play against Norway in their friendly after picking up an ankle injury in training.
Luckily for the Gunners this isn’t thought to be too serious and the forward is in line to make his debut for Arsene Wenger’s side in the Premier League against Manchester City on September 13.
