Arsenal centre-back, 19-year-old Julio Pleguezuelo, has reportedly joined La Liga club Mallorca on a season-long loan.

The youngster, who used to play for Barcelona, spoke recently about his desire to travel the world and gain first team experience and this is clearly what he’ll do at Mallorca.

According to Spanish source, Diario de Mallorca, the loan deal is only for one season and does not include an option to sign him permanently once the spell is up, which obviously shows that Arsenal do have long-term plans for the defender.

The centre-back is highly rated and loaning him out this early in his career in order to earn him experience on the pitch shows that he could become a first team player in the coming years.
