Duo sign professional deals with Arsenal but Chatzitheodoridis set to be released


Arsenal have confirmed that Marc Bola and Savvas Mourgos have signed their first professional contracts with the club, but Ilias Chatzitheodoridis, the last remaining second year scholar, is set to be released when his scholarship deal expires at the end of June. 
Bola has featured prominently for Arsenal U21s and has established himself as the club’s first choice left-back at that level, whilst he is also capable of operating at centre-back if required. 
Mourgos, meanwhile, will hope to follow Bola in becoming a prominent member of the U21 squad next season after delivering some encouraging performances for the U18s of late. 

Despite improving in some aspects of his game, most notably his heading, Chatzitheodoridis hasn’t managed to meet expectations and is likely to be let go in the summer.
