Arsenal’s O’Connor heads to Maastricht with further Dutch loans likely 


It has been confirmed that Arsenal defender Stefan O’Connor has joined Dutch second division side Maastricht on a season-long loan. 

The centre-back, a product of Arsenal’s Hale End academy, had been on trial with Maastricht for several weeks and will gain valuable experience of senior football. 

It is anticipated that Glen Kamara and Tafari Moore will also secure loan moves to Dutch sides shortly, with the pair set to join Dordrecht and Utrecht respectively.

  1. I interpret this as Arsenal believing that these players need to go to leagues where possession- and playing the ball is played on the ground is a focus. And Jonker having the connections to broker these deals and insight into where the players can actually get the necessary playing time.

    Will be interesting to see how this works out…
