18-year-old Robbie Burton confirmed he has signed a professional deal with Arsenal, the club he has been at since he was just six.
With Jack Wilshere leaving the club after 17 years, Arsenal fans are looking to the youth ranks for the next homegrown player who might make the breakthrough.
Only time will tell if Burton will be that player but, for now, he’s made up to have signed a deal with the club.
