Arsenal signing Bernd Leno has message for Bayer Leverkusen fans

Arsenal signing Bernd Leno has sent a farewell message to Bayer Leverkusen and their fans.

The Germany goalkeeper left Bayer for the Gunners yesterday for a fee rising to €25m.

"I enjoyed the time in Leverkusen from the first to the last day. It makes me very grateful that the club was willing to give me the number 1 status as a 19-year-old," said Leno.

"After a fantastic seven years, I will now continue my way in another, very exciting league.

"But I am sure that we will see each other more often on the international (European) stage."
