Arsenal have confirmed that Reiss Nelson has signed a new long-term contract ahead of his season-long loan move to Bundesliga side Hoffenheim.
The exciting 18-year-old winger has put pen-to-paper on a new deal that will keep him at the club until 2023.
It’s been a long process, and one that Arsenal will be glad to have finally got over the line after months of negotiations.
Speaking about the deal, head coach Unai Emery remarked: “Reiss is a talented young player and we’re pleased that he has signed a new contract with us.
“This move to Hoffenheim will give him the chance to get regular high-level competition in the Bundesliga and is an important step in his development.”
The forward made 16 first team appearances last season and is one of the most highly rated talents to come through the academy in recent times.
Best of luck to Reiss in Germany. And congrats on the new contract.
