Who is Kieran Gibbs, did he play for Arsenal and what is the latest in the Love Island cheating storm?
KIERAN GIBBS was regarded as one of England’s rising young stars back in 2010.
The former Three Lions full-back currently plies his trade with Championship side West Brom – but has hit the headlines after allegedly hooking up with Love Island’s India Reynolds.
Who is Kieran Gibbs?
BORN in Lambeth, Gibbs began his youth career at Wimbledon before being snapped up by the Arsenal academy in 2004.
He was originally a winger blessed with blistering pace, but reworked his game to become a full-back as he rose up the ranks at the Gunners.
Gibbs made his first-team debut aged just 18 in 2007, but it wasn’t until 2012/13 that he established himself as a first-team regular.
England came calling as early as 2010, handing the flying full-back his first full international cap.
He’s since gone on to make 10 appearances for the Three Lions, but hasn’t featured since 2015 – and left Arsenal in 2017 to join West Brom after a number of serious injuries.
Gibbs currently plays in the Championship with the Baggies and is hoping to lead them back to the top-flight after play-off heartache last season.
His twin brother Jaydon is also a footballer and played for Dover Athletic and Aldershot Town.
How many trophies did he win at Arsenal?
GIBBS enjoyed a period off success with the Gunners before leaving for £6.75million in 2017.
He won the FA Cup twice in 2014 and 2015, as well as the Community Shield in both of those season.
And he was a key part of the England under-21 side that reached the Euro 2009 final, only to lose out to a rampant Germany.
