Long time Arsenal servant Theo Walcott has finalised his move to Everton, for a fee reported to be £20million.
The 28-year-old has enjoyed a 12-year career with the Gunners, signing from Southampton FC back in 2006 as a fresh faced 16-year-old.
Walcott won four majour honours during his time at the Emirates, including two FA Cup victories, but has found regular football hard to come by this season.
The Arsenal faithful are going to miss the lightning fast winger, who earned over 300 appearences for the Gunners.
Walcott himself announced the move on his personal Twitter page on Wednesday afternoon.

Thanks for everything!

Theo Walcott signs for Everton. Good luck at Goodison park, THEO. That two nil fingure gesture vs Spurs will remain one of those moments in football. pic.twitter.com/KjEcihorRj

Walcott made history by being the youngest English player to go to a World Cup back in 2006, yet did not feature at the tournament.
However, the 28-year-old went on to have a good England career, earning over 40 caps.
One of the most infamous Walcott moments in Arsenal history is the ‘2-0’ gesture he posed after sustaining an injury against Tottenham.
Everton are inheriting a wonderful talent, who has never really reached his full potential, and his pace will complement an already stacked attacking squad at Goodison Park.
