Vermaelen signs for Gunners

23 year old,Thomas Vermaelen has signed for Arsenal for an undisclosed fee from Ajax.

The Belgian who captained the Dutch club throughout last season plays in the center midfield and is capable of playing as a full back as well where he would bolster the defence of Arsene Wenger's goal which tends to take a tumble at crucial junctures.

Speaking to Arsenal's official website, manager Arsene Wenger said :

Thomas is a great signing for Arsenal Football Club, and we are all delighted that he is joining us. Thomas is a solid performer with good experience of Champions League and UEFA Cup football and is also a regular with the Belgium national team.

Vermaelen also set his sights on achieving silverware for the London club and his delight at the switch to the English Premier League.

I’m just so happy to be joining Arsenal. This is a great Club with a world class manager, high quality players and a fantastic stadium. Everything is set up for Arsenal to be very successful for years to come and I joined this Club because I know Arsenal will be challenging for trophies.

Arsenal fans would be happy to see strengthening happening in their defense.Would do the fans feel?
