Teenage winger Aaron Eyoma has signed a professional contract with Arsenal, the club announced on Monday afternoon.

The Academy graduate, who can play at both right-back and right-wing, has been handed a senior deal after progressing through the Gunners’ youth ranks.

Eyoma, 18, has been a regular for Arsenal Under-18s this season, as well as featuring in the UEFA Youth League and for the club’s Under-21s.

Coaching staff at the Academy’s Hale End base are convinced he has the ability to make it as professional after impressing with his pace and technical ability.

“Everyone at Arsenal looks forward to Aaron’s continued development with the club,” said the club in a statement on their website on Monday.

In other Arsenal transfer news, the club are working on four deals on transfer deadline day.
