Deal Complete: Arsenal confirm Danny Welbeck transfer from Manchester United

Arsenal have confirmed the signing of Danny Welbeck.

Arsenal have completed the signing of England international Danny Welbeck.

The striker underwent a medical with the Gunners late on deadline day after being given permission to leave Manchester United.

The Gunners were desperate to land a striker, who has signed a five-year deal with the Gunners.

Welbeck's transfer fee is reported to be in the region of £16 million.

Arsenal had not planned to sign a striker ahead of Olivier Giroud's injury, but the Frenchman's broken foot forced them into entering the market.

Manchester United decided to sell Welbeck on the same day they confirmed Javier Hernandez has joined Real Madrid on loan, and are hoping to announce the loan signing of Radamel Falcao shortly.
