New Arsenal midfielder Ghana international, Thomas Partey , spent five years playing for Atletico Madrid's first team and has already played three times for Arsenal since his Deadline Day move.

"It was my first time, I’d never had that before, I wasn't thinking of anything [about a move], I was talking to a friend, then my agent phoned me and said 'we have to go to this place to sign this paper in case we have to sign some papers for you'.  The 27-year-old insisted he seeks a new challenge and wants to be a better footballer. He continued "You don't always have to be positioned as the coach said, you have to be free and create spaces. With confidence and understanding your team-mates, you'll be able to put all of that into the game."
