Ben White was never in doubt that Arsenal is the place for him.
The England defender joined us on a long-term deal this week, after speaking with Mikel Arteta and technical director Edu.
"I don't think I needed too much convincing to be fair," White told Arsenal Media. "Obviously Arsenal speaks for itself and I spoke to the gaffer a number of times during the summer. I got good vibes and the way the gaffer wants to play, I think I can produce quality in this team and hopefully get Arsenal back.
"I've played in the Football League, I've played for a number of teams on loan and the hunger's still there. I'm really happy to be at a massive club like this and hopefully bring the level up of this team.
"When times get hard in games, I can step up and control situations. I'm very relaxed on the ball and through that I can produce quality in bad moments of the game.
"My main [position] is obviously centre back. That's where I've developed over the years. I've slotted into different positions to help the team and I feel like I can do that to help the team. If I need to do that this season, I'll definitely be up for it."
