Watch Zinchenko sing Arsenal initiation song as he is given Teletubbies nickname after first training session | The Sun

OLEKSANDR ZINCHENKO serenaded his new Arsenal team-mates by belting out disco classic 'It's Friday then' for his initiation song.

The Ukrainian star, 25, joined the Gunners yesterday in a £32million deal from Manchester City.

And Arsenal goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale posted footage of Zinchenko's initiation song to his Instagram account.

The squad clapped and laughed along as Zinchenko sang away while standing on a chair at the team's Orlando hotel.

New boy Zinchenko has also immediately earned himself a Teletubbies-themed nickname from his team-mates in what has been a brutal welcome.

Ramsdale captioned his video of Zinchenko signing "Zinky winky" in reference to Teletubbies character Tinky Winky.

Zinchenko has been chucked straight in at the deep end after leaving City's pre-season camp in Texas to link up with the Arsenal squad in Orlando.

He trained with the Gunners for the first time yesterday, where he was spotted smiling alongside Gabriel Jesus.

Zinchenko walked in the footsteps of Jesus by swapping the Etihad for the Emirates this summer.

The left-back, who can also play in midfield, was reduced to tears after sealing a switch to boyhood club Arsenal.

Upon joining the Gunners he said: "This is a boyhood dream come true, because I was a massive fan when I was a kid.

"Since Thierry Henry and young Cesc Fabregas were playing here, I was just enjoying watching those games, that Arsenal.

"I started to love this club, so I am so excited and I cannot wait to play for this amazing club. I’m ready for another challenge.

"I’m not here just to waste my time and the time of Arsenal because the club is always in front of everyone."

Zinchenko could make his debut against Chelsea in the early hours of Sunday morning (UK time).
