Taylor-Hart, who rose through the ranks of the Hale End academy, confirmed his exit in an Instagram post, expressing his gratitude to the staff, coaches, fans, and fellow players at Arsenal.

Despite his promising talent, Taylor-Hart faced challenges with injuries and limited opportunities with the U21s. During his time at Arsenal, he made 33 appearances for the U21 squad, scoring six goals.

The young winger also had a brief but impactful stint at Bromley FC, where he contributed to their successful promotion campaign with a goal and an assist in nine league appearances.

Meanwhile, Bromley manager Andy Woodman has expressed interest in bringing another Arsenal player, Alex Kirk, back to the club for next season. Kirk, a defender who also spent the season on loan at Bromley, played an even more crucial role in their promotion, particularly in the play-off final.

Woodman, a former Arsenal employee himself, praised Kirk‘s versatility and fitness, stating, “He’s a centre-half, but we put him in at wingback, which we’ve done a couple of times. You know, he’s a fit boy. He was great; he gave us that bit of energy down that side at the end.” He also confirmed his desire to bring Kirk back to Bromley for the upcoming League Two campaign.
