Young Arsenal defender Jordi Osei-Tutu has signed his first professional contract with the club.
The youngster, who joined the Gunners from Reading on scholarship terms in the summer, has been an ever-present for Arsenal U18s this season, featuring in all eight of Frans De Kat’s side’s fixtures so far.
The right-back, who can also play as a winger or at centre-back if required, has impressed with his attacking movements, but has struggled defensively at times.
Osei-Tutu will now be hoping to feature in the UEFA Youth League and U21 squads before the end of the season. He becomes the first member of this season’s batch of scholars to sign professional terms.
Earlier today Arsenal U21 winger Alex Iwobi signed a new long-term contract with the club.
