Arsenal have confirmed that Robbie Burton has joined Croatian outfit Dinamo Zagreb in a permanent deal.
The 20-year-old midfielder looked decent when he featured during the pre-season tour of the US on Freddie Ljungberg’s recommendation.
Unfortunately, given the competition for places, he hasn’t been able to make the breakthrough at senior level and he’s seemingly decided his future is better off elsewhere.
A move to Croatia is certainly unusual for a British player but it’s not like Dinamo Zagreb are a small side. They regularly play Champions League and Europa League football and notable alumni include ex-Gunner Eduardo, Mateo Kovacic, Mark Viduka and Robert Prosinecki.
We wish Robbie all the best in Zagreb.
