Miguel Azeez headlines young Arsenal trio departing on-loan

Arsenal intend to send away three more players before next week's transfer deadline.

Football.London says Miguel Azeez has arrived at Portsmouth to finalise a season-long loan move at Fratton Park.

The 18-year-old is one of the brightest prospects in Arsenal's academy.

Having made his senior debut in the Europa League last term, the youngster impressed in pre-season, notably netting a long-range strike against Watford.

With no European football for the Gunners to compete in over the course of this campaign, a decision has been made to loan Azeez out and ensure he receives regular game time, having found a suitor from League One under a familiar manager.

Pompey boss Danny Cowley coached Emile Smith Rowe at Huddersfield Town and has been entrusted with developing another midfielder.

Fellow midfielder Tim Akinola, 20, is expected to also depart on loan and right-back Ryan Alebiosu, 19, is also expected to spend the season away from North London, with talks over a temporary switch to Sunderland 'gathering pace.'
