​Kavanagh snubs Arsenal & Chelsea for new Middlesbrough deal

Middlesbrough hotshot Calum Kavanagh has reportedly turned down a move to Arsenal.

The Sun claims the player was attracting interest from the likes of Chelsea and the Gunners.

Celtic were even interested, but it appears the 17-year-old is committing to Boro.

He is set to sign a new long term deal with the club, which will keep him there for at least the next three years.

Boro's academy manager Craig Liddle said via The Sun: "We're delighted Calum has signed a professional contract.

"He's shown great application and has a real good work ethic.

"He has a long way to go and a lot to learn, but this is another step on the ladder for him and his continued development."
