Hillson signed for Arsenal last summer after he was released by Reading.
He joined Arsenal as an emergency loan aged 18 before his contract with Reading expired.
Hillson was included in Arsenals Europa League A-list for this season as they were ineligible for the B-list. To qualify for the B list, you have to be born on or after 1st January 1998, which both players are. However, you also have to have spent an uninterrupted period of two years with your current club since your 15th birthday.
He was born in February 1999.
