Our resident youth and reserves expert Jeorge Bird has revealed on Twitter that Nico Yennaris has sealed a short-term deal with Bournemouth ahead of this evening’s loan deadline.
The versatile midfielder, who can also play at right-back, has four first team appearances to his name, including a substitute appearance in the Premier League against Manchester United, but missed the Gunners tour of Asia with injury after last season’s impressive run captaining the under-19s to the final of the Next Gen Series.
Speaking back in August, Yennaris revealed that a loan spell was something he felt would benefit his game.
“I’m looking to get a good loan spell,” he told Arsenal.com. “I need to play first-team games and get that experience so hopefully something will come up soon.
“I’ve spoken to the boss about it and he also said it would be good for me to get more games under my belt in order to get more experience.”
An England under-19 international, despite his Cypriot-Chinese heritage, this is Nico’s second loan spell following a previous stint at Notts County. Arseblog News wishes him the best with the Cherries on the south coast.
