Arsenal snap up South African junior Jayden Adetiba

Arsenal have snapped up South African junior Jayden Adetiba.

The Sun reports the Gunners swooped to land Nigeria-born Jayden Adetiba, who used to live in the UK, after a five-week trial.

He spent most of his life in South Africa and has been playing for the SuperSport United Soccer School.

Adetiba is a life-long Gunners fan and spoke of his delight at earning a "dream" move.

He said: "I thank God and my parents for this. I am very happy.

"I train three times a week at the academy and we have a match at the weekend.

"The amazing thing is, I have always been an Arsenal fan and I will work hard every day to make the first team."
