Ignasi Miquel’s Arsenal career has come to an end this evening after the centre-back signed a permanent deal with Championship side Norwich City.
The 21 year old joined Arsenal as a schoolboy from Cornella in 2008 and went on to make 14 competitive appearances for the first-team, featuring in all four major competitions and scoring his only goal against Coventry City in the League Cup.
The Spanish U21 international spent last season on loan at Leicester City but failed to feature regularly for the Foxes and will be hopeful of reviving his career at Carrow Road.
Although he demonstrated much promise as a youngster, making his debut for the Reserves at 16 years of age, Miquel failed to really progress in recent seasons and was particularly disappointing when asked to play out of position at left-back. With the defender having entered the final year of his contract and now being classed as a senior player according to Premier League and Champions League regulations, now seems the correct time to let him leave, especially with Julio Pleguezuelo and Isaac Hayden progressing well.
