Kieran Gibbs: Defender unhappy with late equaliser

West Brom are close to completing the signing of defender Kieran Gibbs from Arsenal, a report claims.

Sky Sports are claiming that the full-back is undergoing a medical on Tuesday ahead of a move to the Hawthorns.

The clubs have reportedly agreed a fee around £5m for the 27-year-old, who has also attracted interest from Watford and Turkish side Galatasaray.

The Sun claim that the fee is closer to £7m and that Gibbs will have to take a pay cut from his current £60k-a-week wages.

He was reportedly told by Arsene Wenger that he is free to leave the Emirates this summer as the Gunners look to trim their squad.

Gibbs is yet to feature for Arsenal this season, whereas West Brom are in need of a natural left-back as Tony Pulis has been slotting Chris Brunt in the role as makeshift.
