Photos: Theo Walcott sends heartfelt message to fans after Arsenal milestone
Theo Walcott thanks Arsenal's fans for their support after he celebrated 10 years at the north London club on Wednesday
Theo Walcott has taken to social media to reflect on the 10th anniversary of his transfer to Arsenal.
The England international sealed his transfer to the north London club from Southampton on 20 January 2006 and has since been a regular in the Gunners’ first team.
Former Southampton man Walcott shared the animation of photos from his time at Arsenal on his personal Instagram account on Wednesday morning and wrote: “Thank you to everyone who has supported me at the club, players, manager and the fans I can’t thank you enough.”
The 26-year-old will be hoping to feature when Arsenal host Chelsea in the Premier League at Emirates Stadium in Sunday’s crunch clash in north London.
Walcott has scored three goals and made two assists in 16 Premier League games for the Gunners so far this season to help them lead the way at the top of the table.
Arsenal, who have won the FA Cup for the last two seasons, are looking to record their first victory over Chelsea in the Premier League since 2011.
