Harry Donovan set to leave Arsenal

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.



  1. I think City, chelsea or some other big club wants Joe Willock. There must be clubs like Real madrid, city or really good and big club who has talked to him. he´s certainly one of the best winger in England.

      1. Yeah thats possible. But him seeing what his brother do elsewhere and maybe with more money…. He might think twice. I don´t think Arsenal will do much more to secure the signature. We don´t know yet but there might be a club in league 1 or championship who can offer him first team football. I know that seems unlikely but U21 and next year you never know. Chris Willock will be competing against his own brother in 2 season from now on. I think he can play for the U21 in a championship club.
