Arsenal have reportedly sold youngster Dominic Thompson to Brentford with his medical taking place now.
The Arsenal 19-year-old left-sided player who found a home at left-back was awarded a professional contract last summer but the club have taken the option to move him on during this window.

Thompson played 13 times and a total of 695 minutes last season in Premier League 2.
The twist here could be that he’s replacing Rico Henry who Celtic apparently want to replace Kieran Tierney if he ever ends up at Arsenal…pity Neil Lennon already rubbished his side’s linked with Henry, eh?
He also added that Tierney, contrary to reports that he’s out for up to two months, should be fit in around two weeks.
“He’ll be fit in a week or two,” Lennon said. “He still has some abductor pain, but I think the pubic problem is starting to settle and he’s over the double hernia.
“I know there is talk of him being out for another eight weeks, but that’s nonsense. I don’t know where that’s come from.
“I’d say he’s more or less a week away from getting back integrated to the training. Add another week or ten days on top of that before he’s ready to play.”
