Danny Welbeck says he feels very welcome in the Arsenal dressing room after his move to The Emirates in the summer.

The 23-year-old linked up with his fellow England internationals Calum Chambers, Kieran Gibbs, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Jack Wilshere and Theo Walcott after his £16m move from Manchester United.

All the players, the staff, everyone around the club – they have all welcomed me with open arms

And Welbeck, who has scored five goals in 12 appearances in all competitions for the Gunners, feels the English contingent have helped the striker settle at the north London club.

“It has definitely helped having the English boys here. I’ve known them for quite a while now, though I met Calum Chambers on the last trip with England.” Welbeck told Arsenal’s website.

“It was easy to come into the changing room. Everyone has been so welcoming and it was good to come into the squad and see some familiar faces.

“But it hasn’t just been them who have been good to me – it’s been everyone at the club.

“It’s going well, it’s a great set up here and a really good environment to be in. All the players, the staff, everyone around the club – they have all welcomed me with open arms and that is very pleasing. I’m really grateful for that.”
