Prolific Eddie Nketiah signs pro terms with Arsenal

Arsenal youngster Eddie Nketiah has signed his first professional contract with the North London club.

The 17-year-old striker joined the Hale End Academy in 2015 after he was released by Chelsea.

Nketiah was the top scorer for the Arsenal U18 squad last season with 24 goals in 28 appearances.

He has continued his form this season and has scored four goals in three league games.

The club released a statement regarding the Nketiah deal, which read: "We would like to congratulate Eddie on his new contract, and look forward to his continued progress with the club."
