Arsenal have confirmed that Brentford have signed youngster Dominic Thompson in a permanent deal.
The 19-year-old left-back featured against Colorado Rapids, Fiorentina and Angers in pre-season and was also part of the squad that travelled to Barcelona last weekend.
If he thought he was edging closer to regular first team football, it appears the club were thinking otherwise.
In fairness, it can’t have come as too much of a surprise. Our pursuit of Celtic’s Kieran Tierney has been very public and Sead Kolasinac and Nacho Monreal are also ahead of him in the pecking order.
Anyway, best of luck to Dominic at Brentford. They are a club with a decent scouting department so they must have seen something they liked.
