Gedion Zelalem has joined Glasgow Rangers on loan for the duration of the 2015-16 season, report the Daily Record.
The 18 year old will play at Ibrox under manager Mark Warburton in a move that will significantly take him out of his comfort zone.
One of the most highly-rated young players at Arsenal, he was discovered by US scout Danny Karbassiyoon, and caught the eye during pre-season 2014 with some silky performances.
Rangers are getting themselves a very talented player, one whose passing ability can unlock defences, but who does need to develop physically and learn to cope with that side of the game.
Regular football was always going to be the next step in his development, and while the Scottish Championship is an unusual place for an Arsenal youngster to end up, there’s no reason why this can’t play a good part in his footballing education.
