Arsenal have confirmed that Brooke Norton-Cuffy has joined Lincoln City on loan for the rest of the season.
The 18-year-old right-back, who signed his first pro contract at the Emirates last year, moves to the League One outfit for his first taste of senior football.
Having been part of the under-21 side that has progressed to the quarter-finals of the Papa John’s Trophy it’s a shame Brooke will miss the showdown with Wigan next Tuesday but hopefully, things go well for him at Sincil Bank.
Norton-Cuffy is expected to be one of a raft of academy kids who head out on loan before the end of the month.
We’re expecting each and every one of their departures to be greeted with huffs of disapproval from a few blockheads in the press who’ll no doubt moan that Arsenal is taking the piss when Mikel Arteta can barely put together a matchday squad.
