Atletico Madrid have confirmed Thomas Partey's release clause has been met by Arsenal.

Representatives from the Premier League club paid the £45m sum at La Liga headquarters before Monday's transfer deadline.

The Ghana midfielder is now free to sign a contract with the Gunners.

A statement on the Atleti website read: “Arsenal representatives have paid Thomas Partey's release clause on behalf of the player.

"LaLiga informed Atlético de Madrid at 11.28pm on Monday that Arsenal representatives have paid Thomas Partey's release clause at the sports association's headquarters.

“The player has therefore unilaterally terminated his contract with our club, which ran until June 30, 2023."
