Kieran Gibbs has verbally agreed to join Inter Miami on a two-and-a-half-year deal at the end of the season, according to a report.
Gibbs’ contract expires in the summer, at which point he’ll be free to move across the Atlantic to join the MLS club. New York Red Bulls and DC United also expressed an interest in the left-back, but never entered into serious negotiations.
Whilst Gibbs is yet to sign on the dotted line, all parties are now confident the deal will go through.
Phil Neville is currently in charge of the side, who are yet to kick off their campaign due to the calendar-year format utilised by the MLS.
Obviously, this means Gibbs will arrive halfway through the campaign, but he doesn’t have much choice given he’s under contract with West Brom until June.
At 31, Gibbs has only played for three clubs in his senior career so far. He spent over a decade at Arsenal, going on one short-term loan to Norwich City. Then he joined West Bromwich Albion.
In all, he made well over 300 appearances in English football and won two FA Cups and two Community Shields with Arsenal.
