Stoke delighted to nick Glasgow from under Arsenal noses

Stoke City are delighted with their capture of former Arsenal fullback Ben Glasgow.

Stoke nipped in for the 18-year-old right-back after Arsenal declined to offer him a full professional contract.

He has instead agreed a development contract at Stoke to play for their new under-21s team which will come into being next season if, as expected, the club wins Category A status for its Academy.

Stoke's Academy director David Wright said: "He is a player I have watched personally and, coming from Arsenal, he clearly has a fine background and pedigree.

"He is a London boy, but has played at youth level for Ireland."
