Two for one: Kid brother of Salah-Eddine in line for Arsenal scholarship

Arsenal summer signing Salah-Eddine has been joined by his younger brother Ismail Oulad M'Hand at the club's academy.

Salah-Eddine joined the Gunners as a free agent last year after falling out with Feyenoord management. An exciting prospect but has endured an injury hit first season in north London.

Capable of playing in midfield or out wide, Salah-Eddine has made two appearances for the U23s but hasn't featured since September.

Jeorge Bird's Arsenal youth website reports his brother Ismail Oulad M'Hand, a central midfielder, is currently playing for Arsenal U16s, having secured his move to the club in January from Feyenoord.

And there's a good chance that Ismail will be part of the Gunners' scholarship intake for next season.
