Gibbs has been in Miami since 2021, though he has never appeared as a starter
Gibbs originally joined Inter Miami halfway through the 2021 season after making over 300 combined appearances during his time in England.
He is best known for his time at Arsenal where he made 229 appearances in all competitions.
While playing for the Gunners he won the FA Cup on three consecutive occasions – lifting the trophy at the end of the 2013/2014, 2014/2015 and 2016/2017 seasons.
After moving from Arsenal, he made a total of 100 appearances for West Brom and also spent a season on loan at Norwich during his time in England.
Gibbs also made 10 England caps during his career.
He never featured as a starter every week after moving to Miami, which often played homegrown players Noah Allen and Christopher McVey at fullback last year.
They also signed veteran Argentine left-back Franco Negri to add depth to the position.
For now, Gibbs is still listed as an active member of the Inter Miami roster on the team’s official website.
