Kieran Gibbs will become the latest star to sign for David Beckham’s Inter Miami outfit, with the MLS side announcing the West Brom left back is set to join on a free transfer this summer.
The 31-year-old will head to the US when his Baggies deal expires at the end of the season following four years at the Hawthorns.
Gibbs joined the Baggies in 2017 after an 11-year career at Arsenal, where he came through the ranks and made over 100 appearances.

He has played 100 times for West Brom, but only 11 of them have come this season as he has struggled to impress boss Sam Allardyce.
Gibbs will join a growing and ambitious project on the south coast, with owner Beckham already showing his intent by snapping up former Juventus stars Blaise Matuidi and Gonzalo Higuain.
Former Stoke centre back Ryan Shawcross will also be a friendly fellow English face at the club, having joined last month.

Speaking after his move the MLS was announced, Gibbs said he was relishing a fresh chapter in his career and the chance to test himself with ‘a new culture and challenge’.
‘I’m extremely excited to be starting the next chapter of my career with Inter Miami this summer,’ Gibbs said on Inter Miami’s official website.
‘I look forward to embracing a new culture and a new challenge in South Florida.
‘I’m really impressed by the vision of the club, and can’t wait to play in front of The Siege, Southern Legion, and Vice City 1896.
‘In the meantime, my focus and commitment remains with West Brom. I will continue to give 100 per cent for the club, as I have done since I signed, until the end of the season.’

Chris Henderson, Inter Miami’s sporting director, called Gibbs ‘an exciting player’ and praised his ‘standout career’ in the game so far.
‘Kieran is an exciting player, Henderson said.
‘His technique, experience and work rate will be valuable on the left flank.
‘He has had a standout career at the highest levels so far, and we believe he can continue bringing this same level of quality to Inter Miami and MLS this summer.’
