Explosive wideman Gibbs joined Arsenal in 2004 following the collapse of the Youth Academy at Wimbledon. Gibbs made his debut against last week’s opposition Sheffield United in the League Cup and he made one further appearances in the competition, against Blackburn Rovers. He spent the latter half of last season at Championship outfit Nowrich under the management of Glen Roeder, playing seven games before returning back to Arsenal to reclaim his spot in the Reserves. The blistering pace and tendency to bomb up the sidelines from the fullback position means he may be used as a back-up to Gael Clichy if Frenchman Armand Traore makes his loan move to Portsmouth permanent.
