Arsenal have agreed new deals with youngsters Marc Bola and Savvas Mourgos.

Bola, 18, is a defender who helped the club reach the FA Youth Cup semi-final this year, signed his first professional contract with the club and was suitably delighted to have done so:

A promising left-back, Bola signed scholarship terms with the club in 2014 after coming through the Hale End Academy and can also play as a centreback.

A Greek midfielder, Savvas signed for the club after impressing on trial and also signed his scholarship terms in 2014.

Playing mainly as a central midfielder, Mourgos can also operate as a defensive midfielder.

His standout attributes at the moment would be his close control and excellent drilling skills.

Excellent news as this exciting generation gets ready to bloom.
