Championship side Brighton and Hove Albion have signed Arsenal striker Chuba Akpom on loan for the rest of the season.

This is Akpom’s fifth loan spell away from Arsenal following stints with Brentford, Coventry City, Nottingham Forest and Hull City.

The England youth international has had a frustrating season so far, with injuries restricting him to just one senior appearance for Arsenal.

Akpom has long been tipped to make the breakthrough at Arsenal, but, at the age of 21, he no longer has quite so much time to make the cut and this loan spell could well be crucial in determining his long term future.
