Gnabry becomes fourth summer signing at The Hawthorns
ALBION have completed the season-long loan signing of winger Serge Gnabry from Arsenal.
The talented 20-year-old underwent a medical at the Club’s training ground earlier this week and has signed a deal until the end of the Barclays Premier League campaign.
Gnabry will wear No.31 and is the fourth summer signing at The Hawthorns after James McClean, James Chester and Rickie Lambert.

“I’m very delighted by the move,” said Gnabry, who is a Germany Under-21 international.
“I see the opportunity that I can play, it’s a good club and I’ve heard good things.
“I’m very happy that I’ve signed here. I’ve got good impressions and I feel it’s a good environment for me to play and also develop as a player.”
Head Coach Tony Pulis added: “We’re delighted to add Serge to our options.
“He is a top player and he will bring us quality in certain areas of the pitch.”
Gnabry, born in Stuttgart, followed a path in football despite also being a talented sprinter as a youngster.
The versatile winger joined Arsenal in 2011 after impressing for VfB Stuttgart.
Gnabry made his first-team debut for the Gunners in a League Cup triumph over Coventry City in 2012 and has since gone on to gain Premier League, Champions League and FA Cup experience, signing a new long-term contract with the London club in 2013.
In all, he has played 19 times for Arsenal, scoring once – that goal coming in a Premier League victory at Swansea City in 2013.
Gnabry also featured for Germany in this summer’s UEFA European Under-21 Championships.
