Meanwhile, Arsenal’s Josh Robinson has earned a scholarship deal with the club. His former side London Colney Colts confirmed the news on their Twitter page, tweeting their congratulations.
Arsenal Youth reported that Arsenal were offering Robinson a deal in November, and it seems the player is planning to take it up.
We’re getting to that point in the year when decisions are made on scholarship deals and professional contracts.
We’ve already seen Levi Laing on trial with West Ham are he was reportedly informed he’s unlikely to get a pro deal. Then there are the likes of Bradley Ibrahim, Tino Quamina, Kieran Petrie, and Sydie Peck who are all expected to stay, among others.
Unfortunately, we’re unlikely to get any official confirmation until closer to next season, unless the players announce it themselves.
Arsenal usually don’t release a statement confirming all the scholarship deals until summer, when they can announce them all at once. We may get updates on any outstanding pro deals before that though, with the likes of Kido Taylor-Hart yet to sign.
