Arsenal have completed the signing of Ghana international midfielder Thomas Partey from Atletico Madrid.

The midfielder becomes the most expensive Ghanaian player in history since Michael Essien's £24.4 move from Lyon to Chelsea in 2005.

The 27-year-old who has been a priority signing for Arsenal this summer has finally committed to a 5-year contract until 2025.

The move comes after the Premier League club triggered his €50 million release clause.

Partey was expected to join the Black Stars camp in Turkey on Monday but he asked for a few days to give him time to sort this out.

He will join the Black Stars by Wednesday and after the international break, Partey will join his new Arsenal teammates.
