Eisfeld delighted to join Arsenal from Borussia Dortmund

Thomas Eisfeld has spoken out about his transfer from German champions Borussia Dortmund to Arsenal.

The 19-year old German youth international midfielder made the move to the Gunners today on a long-term contract for a reported compensation fee of around £450,000 and is looking forward to his future in North London.

"I feel very proud to have signed for Arsenal. This is a great club, with many great players, and I'm so happy to be joining Arsenal," he told the club's official website.

"It's a real honour to be team mates with the great players at Arsenal, and also training everyday with players like Tomas Rosicky - who I grew up watching play at Dortmund. I will give it everything I have here and do my best to make the manager, players and fans happy."

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger admitted that the signing of Eisfeld is one for the future.

"Thomas is a player we have liked for some time. We've watched him closely this season, where he has excelled for Dortmund's youth team," the Frenchman said.

"He is young but has proven to us that he can play, that he has the attitude and technical ability to be a valuable addition to our squad. We're very pleased to welcome him to the Club and look forward to his contribution in the coming seasons."
