Second year scholar Harry Donovan is set to leave Arsenal after the club refused to guarantee him a professional contract.
The 17-year-old central-midfielder was a mainstay for the U18s last season after signing scholarship terms and also featured in the UEFA Youth League, but wasn’t guaranteed a long term future at the club.
A good passer of the ball who weighed in with several goals last season, Donovan struggles with 50-50 challenges. He trained with the first-team squad once last season and previously featured for the U18s when he was still a schoolboy.
However, he failed to earn a call up to the U21 squad last season and is now likely to leave the club in the near future. Arsenal will still allow the youngster to train with the club whilst he attempts to secure a deal elsewhere.
Meanwhile, Joe Willock’s future is also uncertain, with the Hale End product yet to offically sign his scholarship deal.
