Arsene Wenger has confirmed the signing of Cohen Bramall from Hednesford Town in the seventh tier of English football.

A pacy left back, Bramall can also play further up the pitch. The Daily Star claim an Arsenal insider told them that Bramall is expected to act as back up for Nacho Monreal and Kieran Gibbs after signing a two-and-a-half year deal.

It is expected that everything will be formally announced by the end of the week after the player spent Christmas at the club and trained with the first team.
