Promising midfielder Dan Crowley has signed his first professional contract with the club.
The England youth international, who turned 17 yesterday, was impressive in his first season since joining from Aston Villa, despite enduring several injury setbacks.
An an excellent passer of the ball, Crowley has also demonstrated during his appearances for the U21 team this pre-season that he is capable of finding the net himself.
Considered one of Arsenal and England’s best prospects, Crowley should become a regular for the club at U21 level this season. He is yet to be called up by the first-team, but has been allowed to develop in the youth sides and is certainly reaping the benefits.
