Welbeck: I'm getting used to life in London.

Danny Welbeck reveals that he is still adjusting to life in London following his summer transfer move to the Emirates.

The England striker signed for Arsenal on the transfer deadline day in September and has registered four goals in six games for the Gunners in all competition.

However the 23-year-old told the Arsenal Magazine that London is a little different from Manchester where he was born and bred.

“It’s a bit different in London, because obviously I was born and bred in Manchester so that’s a place I know like the back of my hand,” the Striker told Arsenal Magazine.

“I went to school there and you really get to know the city. Manchester is much smaller so you know a lot of people in the vicinity.

“Growing up there, we played lots of different schools and you’d see people you knew in town all the time. I used to get two buses to school and you’d see more or less everyone in the city centre, so I kind of knew everyone around my age group,” Welbeck added.

“There were a lot of people in Manchester that I was connected to so it is a bit different coming to London and not knowing as many people. But I have got friends down here and my cousin has been working here for a few years now.

“It is a change for me but something I’m really looking forward to – starting a new adventure.”
