Trio sign new deals with Arsenal but Dasilva’s future remains uncertain

Arsenal announced today that Deyan Iliev, Tolaji Bola and Robbie Burton have all signed new contracts with the club.

Goalkeeper Iliev, who has been at Arsenal since 2012, showed some significant signs of improvement last season following a two-year injury layoff.

The Macedonian shot-stopper made the bench in the League Cup last season and could now go on loan to gain further experience.

Another player who could be heading on temporary transfer is left-back Bola.

The Hale End product was a mainstay for the title-winning U23 team in the second half of last season but has yet to receive a first-team call up.

Midfielder Burton, meanwhile, has signed his first professional contract with the club.

The Wales U21 international impressed in Arsenal’s run to the FA Youth Cup final last campaign and will now be part of the U23 squad.

The future of Josh Dasilva, however, remains less clear, with the midfielder still yet to commit to a new deal.

Dasilva made three first-team appearances last season, all of which came in the EFL Cup, but he is still assessing his options despite having been involved in gym work at the training ground.

Defender Tobi Omole was offered a professional contract but has seemingly rejected it.
