DONE DEAL? Fram Larvik 'confirm' Arsenal have signed George Lewis

Arsenal have completed the signing of Norwegian winger George Lewis.

While Arsenal are yet to officially confirm the transfer, Jostein Jensen - sporting director of Lewis' former club Fram Larvik - claims the youngster has signed for the Premier League giants.

“Yes, we can confirm that. I have been told that he has signed for Arsenal," Jensen told VG.

Lewis, born in Kigali, Rwanda, began his footballing career playing in the youth set-up at Tromso 2 and has spent the majority of his youth career playing in the Norwegian third tier.

While relatively unknown in his age group, it is believed Lewis impressed Arsenal coaches during a two-week trial earlier in March.

He is expected to link up with Steve Bould's Under-23s development squad, rather than the first team, should the deal be confirmed.
