Daley-Campbell and Spencer-Adams leave Arsenal

Young defenders Vontae Daley-Campbell and Bayli Spencer-Adams have left Arsenal following the expiry of their scholarship contracts.

Talented right-back Daley-Campbell has been linked with several German clubs.

The Hale End product was part of the Arsenal U18 side that won the southern section title last season and featured for the U23s during the previous campaign.

Strong physically, Daley-Campbell, who has been capped by England at youth level, provides a significant threat going forwards and has also improved defensively.

Losing Daley-Campbell is a major disappointment for Arsenal but the player can’t be begrudged for seeking better opportunities elsewhere.

Spencer-Adams, meanwhile, impressed for the U18s in the first half of the season before injury halted his progress.

It is perhaps a little harsh that he has been released, but Arsenal can call upon the likes of Mark McGuinness and Harry Clarke, who will be part of the U23 squad next season.

Goalkeeper James Hillson has also left following the expiry of his loan spell but, given that he has been released by Reading, there is still a possibility that he could sign for the Gunners on a permanent basis.
