Dragomir amongst eight youngsters offered new deals as Beckford and Benson are released


Arsenal have offered new contracts to eight youngsters, including Vlad Dragomir.

In addition to talented midfielder Dragomir, defender Tolaji Bola has also been offered an extension along with Josh DaSilva and Yassin Fortune.

The Gunners also want to retain the services of goalkeeper Deyan Iliev, while Robbie Burton, Tobi Omole and Dominic Thompson have all been offered their first professional contracts.

Meanwhile, the remaining second-year scholars, Josh Benson and Jay Beckford, have both been released.

Midfielder Benson featured in the FA Youth Cup but failed to impress sufficiently to break into the U23s on a regular basis, while Beckford, who was signed from Leyton Orient as a schoolboy, frequently seemed out of his depth at U18 level.
