Arsenal have confirmed that Tyreece John-Jules is the latest Arsenal youngster to be recalled from loan.
The 20-year-old had been due to spend the whole season with Blackpool but his lack of game time since October has seen the Gunners take the decision to end the agreement prematurely.
It remains to be seen whether John-Jules is sent out to another club for the second half of the season or if he’ll continue his development with the under-23s.
Loan manager Ben Knapper and academy manager Per Mertesacker have certainly been keeping busy recently; by our reckoning, John-Jules is the sixth youngster to return to London Colney since the start of January and the second today.
We reported earlier that Miguel Azeez was back from Portsmouth while Jordi Osei-Tutu (Nottingham Forest), Jonathan Dinzeyi (Carlisle), Nikolaj Moller (Viktoria Koln) and Harry Clarke (Ross County) were also recalled. The latter has since moved to Hibernian. Jeorge Bird also believes Tom Smith’s time at Welling is over.
Daniel Ballard (Millwall), Matt Smith (Doncaster Rovers) remain with their clubs.
