Danny Welbeck has ended his 17-year association with Manchester United and joined Arsenal in a £16 million transfer deadline day move.

Welbeck, 23, has signed a five-year contract at Arsenal and becomes the club's fifth and final summer signing after the arrivals of Alexis Sánchez, Mathieu Debuchy, David Ospina and Calum Chambers.

A product of United's academy, Welbeck scored 29 goals in 142 appearances for the Reds, winning Club World Cup, League Cup and Premier League winners' medals after making his debut in 2008.

The England international has won 25 caps and was a key figure in the Three Lions' Euro 2012 and 2014 World Cup campaigns.
