Leicester City defender, Daniel Amartey has showered praises on Thomas Partey after completing his move to Arsenal.

The 27-year-old midfielder joined the Gunners on transfer deadline day after his £45 million was triggered.

Amartey signed a five year deal with the Premier League side in a £250,000-a-week deal.

In Twitter post, Amartey welcomed the midfielder to the Premier League with the caption 'Akwaaba to the Premier League @ThomasPartey22"

The 27-year-old midfielder had been with Atletico since 2012, making 188 appearances, in which time he won both the Europa League and Super Cup in 2018, and was a Champions League runner-up in 2016.

Last season, the Ghana international made 46 appearances for Atletico, playing a key role in their third-place finish in La Liga and reaching the quarter-finals of the Champions League.

Partey and Amartey are key players for the Ghana national team.
