Watford agree fee with Arsenal for defender

According to Sky Sports, Arsenal have agreed a fee with Watford for leftback Kieran Gibbs.

Looks like Gibbs is set for an exit with the England international keen to play for boss Marco Silva at Vicarage Road. The left back lost his first-team place to Nacho Monreal last season when he made just eight Premier League starts and, having missed the pre-season tour to the Far East, has yet to feature this season. The 27 year old has attracted interests from several Premier League clubs including West Brom and Newcastle United. However, West Brom have since pulled out of the race after the Gunners rejected £10m. 

Gibbs who is a product of Arsenal academy has one year left on his contract and is keen to reignite his career by looking for first team action away from Emirates.
