Lukasz Fabianski became the first summer signing in May 2014 after he joined on a free transfer from Arsenal.
The Polish international signed a four-year deal with the club to become Garry Monk’s first signing since taking over officially as manager.
Fabianski ended a seven-year spell with Arsenal, having played his last game in the FA Cup final win over Hull City at Wembley.
Voted Poland’s best top-flight keeper in each season during his two-year spell at Legia Warsaw before a £2million move to the Gunners in 2007, Fabianski spent the majority of his time at The Emirates as an understudy.
But he signed off on a winning note as his penalty-shootout heroics helped Arsenal to the FA Cup final after a tense semi-final clash with Wigan. Arsene Wenger again included him in his starting XI as the Gunners ended a nine-year wait for a trophy after beating Hull in a dramatic final.
On top of domestic duties, Fabianski also managed 14 appearances in the Champions League under Wenger, with his most recent coming in the 1-1 draw at Bayern Munich – in which he saved a penalty - in March 2014 as Arsenal bowed out in the last 16 stage.
