Arsenal have announced that youngster Nico Yennaris has signed a contract extension with the club. Despite being primarily a midfielder, he made his first team debut at right back in the Carling Cup against Bolton last month.
Speaking on his Twitter account he revealed he’d signed for ‘another year’ at the club and will be hoping to do enough to extend that again in the future.
Meanwhile, another of the reserve team’s highly regarded midfielders, Chuks Aneke, has joined League One outfit Stevenage FC on loan until January 2012. He joins his teammate Luke Freeman who also joined Stevenage on loan last week and Boro boss Graham Westley will be hoping the two Arsenal men can recreate some of the understand they’ll have from reserve games.
Arsenal’s reserves are in action this evening against Wolves. A very young team lines up with Sebastian Squillaci and Vito Mannone as the experienced heads in the side.
