Arsenal have secured teenage midfielder Gedion Zelalem to a stunning pro deal.

The Daily Express says the teenager has agreed a new £30,000-a-week contract.

The size of the deal for the 17-year-old, who made his debut as a substitute in the FA Cup Fourth Round win over Coventry, reflects how highly he is rated by manager Arsene Wenger.

Zelalem, who is now contracted to 2017, was born after Wenger first joined Arsenal and is regarded as the club's most promising youngster to emerge since Cesc Fabregas.
