The majority of Kieran Gibbs’s senior career has been spent at Arsenal, but since the summer of 2017 the left-back has been plying his trade at West Bromwich Albion.
The 28-year-old, who earns £55,000-a-week according to Spotrac, accepted that his game time would be severely limited if he stayed with the Gunners, and as a result decided to move to The Hawthorns.
This season is more important than ever for the Baggies as they try to navigate their way back to the Premier League after suffering relegation last summer.
Gibbs has started eight of the Baggies’ nine Championship games, and has contributed with two goals and three assists.

One of those goals was scored at the weekend in a 2-0 victory over Millwall on home soil.
Gibbs was instrumental in the fixture as he pushed forward as often as possible to create movement in the box.
On Twitter, plenty of West Brom fans hailed the left-back’s weekend performance at The Hawthorns.
Would be interesting to see how many crosses he stopped as well, superb defensively as well as offensively
