DONE DEAL: Valencia complete signing of Arsenal defender Gabriel

Arsenal have sold Gabriel Paulista to Valencia.

Gabriel has left Arsenal for a move to Spanish side Valencia in a £10million transfer.

Both the Gunners and Valencia confirmed the transfer via statements on their official websites, with the defender signing a five-year contract with an 80-million euro release clause.

The move brings to an end Gabriel's short tenure in north London, with the 26-year-old having failed to settle at Arsenal after moving from Villarreal in January 2015.

The Brazilian defender has not featured for Arsene Wenger's side since sustaining a knee injury in Arsenal's 3-1 win over Everton on the final day of the 2016-17 campaign.
