Arsenal stars give transferred player Twitter send off: It's quieter with you!

Frimpong

Various senior members of Arsene Wenger's roster have given Barnsley-bound Emmanuel Frimpong their best wishes.

There will be no more dench, no more prolific Instagramming showing Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain busting moves to ragga tunes and no more social media trolling of Manchester United manager David Moyes, well, maybe only the middle one as social media legend Emmanuel Frimpong has transferred away from Arsenal, a club he has been with since 2001, to Barnsley, on a permanent basis.

A popular member of the dressing room for his eccentric behaviour and sense of humour, Frimpong will be missed by the senior Gunners as a number of the Ghanian's former team-mates at club-level huddled together to give the 22-year-old a send-off on Twitter.

Arguably the most heart-felt came from Jack Wilshere, calling Frimpong his bro, his bromantic partner and that he wouldn't have progressed all the way to first-choice midfielder and a candidate for future Arsenal captain if it were not for him.

Wilshere's fellow midfielder Aaron Ramsey commented that the dressing-room will be a lot quieter…

Accompanying Lukas Podolski's photograph were the words: 'Frimmy; all the best for your future. It is good to know you. It was a great time bro! Good luck in Barnsley, you'll smash it there!! Love you.'
