DONE DEAL: Gillingham boss Evans welcomes Arsenal youngster Trae Coyle

Gillingham boss Steve Evans has confirmed Arsenal youngster Trae Coyle rejected offers from Holland and Germany to join the League One club.

The 19-year-old forward joined Arsenal teammate Zac Medley in joining the Gills.

Speaking to the club's website, Evans said: "Trae is a very exciting young talent and he is ready to further his football education.

"He is very highly thought of at Arsenal and his performances have made him a sought after loan player.

"Trae has a lot to learn, his development we are entrusted with but, in reality, his attitude and work rate will determine his success at League 1 level because he is a very very talented boy. He had a vast choice of clubs here in England, Holland and Germany so we are delighted to get the lad here."
