Just over a week ago we reported that Eddie Nketiah had signed his first professional contract with Arsenal and now the club have officially announced it.

The young striker, who the Gunners picked up after he was released by Chelsea, is only 17 years old but is already enjoying a brilliant spell with the youth squad.

It’s fantastic to see yet another young prospect being tied down to a long-term contract and it’ll be exciting to potentially see him work his way through the ranks at Arsenal as he develops.

You can watch all of Eddie’s u18 goals so far in the video below.

Congrats Eddie (officially) and good luck for the future.
