Arsenal have announced that Tyreece John-Jules has signed a new contract with the club.
The highly rated forward featured during the summer tour of the US, and the club have been keen to tie him down on improved terms for a while.
Having seen one of the Academy’s other bright stars, Xavier Amaechi, leave this summer for Hamburger SV, it’s good news that the 18 year old sees his immediate future in red and white.
He’s unlikely to see too much first team action next season, simply because of the array of attacking talent in the squad, but he could feature in the Europa League group stages, and at underage level he’ll look to build on the 16 goals he scored in all competitions last season.
A door might also open a bit if Eddie Nketiah leaves on loan, although Unai Emery has said he wants to keep the striker around as back up for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette.
Best of luck to him.
