Crowley loan set for Go Ahead

Dan Crowley looks set to complete a loan move to Dutch side Go Ahead Eagles after impressing on a recent trial.

It is reported by de Stentor, that the 19-year-old has already passed his medical and will compete for inclusion in the side that faces AZ Alkmaar on 13 January.

Crowley, who signed for the Gunners from Aston Villa in 2014, had signed a season-long deal with Oxford United in July only for the League One side to prematurely end the agreement at the start of December. He’s previously been on loan at Barnsley.

So a new year and a new start for the promising midfielder. It’ll be interesting to see how he gets on in the Eredivisie; a more technically astute environment compared to the rough and tumble of the third tier in England.

Good luck to him. Getting close to a decision point on whether he has an Arsenal future. Hope he can impress.

Well……good luck to him of course. Looks like a good chance, let’s hope he takes it this time.


The dutch league used to be known for producing technically gifted players, I hope for Crowleys sake that’s still the case. He needs to see there are others just as technically gifted (if not more so) than he is and start adding hard work, commitment and discipline to his game and his life in general.


So nobody is going to make an joke about the name of this club, Go Ahead? Seems like typical Arsenal not going for something that’s on a platter.

There’s only one way Crowley will develop in that club and that is not backwards, left, or right ways. He will just go ahead. Arsene knows.


Wade Wilson

Hard to see why he hasn’t established himself at his loan clubs. Not lacking in technique or flair. He usually impressed in his youth appearances. And seemed to be starring in the few chances he got at Oxford/Barnsley. Seems quite a talent, hope he realises it with us.

Ben Franklin

I’m not much for the vague accusations of “unprofessional behaviour” by a seemingly bitter manager toiling in the third-tier of English football. Crowley, at 18 and 19 years old, has remained positive or mum when it comes to each respective situation. Meanwhile, 41-year-old Michael Appleton couldn’t seem to stop talking negatively to the press about this young man. I question Appleton’s professionalism. League One hasn’t seemed like a sensible development plan for a prospective Arsenal player. The Eridivisie should be a much better fit.
