Emmanuel Frimpong today completed a permanent transfer from Arsenal to Barnsley.

The move represents a drop from the Premier League to the Championship, and the 22-year-old seems to think it could lead to a drop in his success with the ladies as well.

Following confirmation of his move, the Ghanaian took to Instagram to express his concern.

"How am I gonna draw girls now", wrote Frimpong, complete with three crying faces after it.

Frimpong, whose made 16 senior appearances for Arsenal amid an injury hit career, is renowned for his social media pranks.

Earlier this season he posted a mocking 'taxi for David Moyes' picture and in January posted a picture of Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner appearing as if he had just won the Fifa Ballon d'Or.


Slightly more seriously, Frimpong took to Twitter to express his sadness at leaving the club he joined as a schoolboy.
