Arsenal midfielder Partey: I'm happy 'so intelligent' Odegaard now my teammate!

Arsenal midfielder Thomas Partey has welcomed the arrival of Martin Odegaard from Real Madrid.

Odegaard sealed a January loan switch to north London in search of more game time, and Arsenal fans have only seen glimpses of his talent in the Premier League so far.

Partey told Stadium Astro: "It's difficult when you play against him.

"I remember playing against him, he's so intelligent, he is always quick on the ball, he doesn't give you a chance to win the ball.

"It's amazing to have him here. I hope he has a great season and he's able to help us achieve what we want to achieve."
