Matt O'Riley snubs Arsenal, Man City to pen pro Fulham terms

Fulham have fought off major Premier League competition to secure Matt O'Riley to a new deal.

The Championship side were desperate to thrash out a deal for the highly-rated 17-year-old midfielder as Arsenal and Manchester City circled.

O'Riley who has represented England at Under-16 and 18 level has penned a deal until at least 2020.

The teenager told Fulhamfc.com: “Obviously this is one of the best birthdays I've ever had.

"It's a great day for me and my family, I've been here since I was eight-years-old.

"This means a lot to me and I am just looking forward to kicking on now."
