Youngster George Dobson is set to leave Arsenal, despite signing professional terms with the club as recently as last November.
The 17-year-old, who progressed through the club’s Hale End system, broke into the Arsenal U18 team whilst he was still a schoolboy and this season made nine appearances for the U21s in the first year of his scholarship.
It was expected that Dobson, who can play at centre-back or as a defensive-midfielder, would go on to establish himself as an important player for the second-string next season.
However, his team-mate Tyrell Robinson has revealed on Instagram that Dobson, in a surprise move, will be leaving the club this summer. His destination is currently unknown, but it comes as a shock that the youngster, who also featured in the UEFA Youth League and the FA Youth Cup this season, will be moving on.
Thanks to Andy’s Arsenal U16s for spotting this.
