Arsenal’s new first-year scholars reported for duty at London Colney today, with Ovie Ejeheri and Daniel Oyegoke amongst them.
Ejeheri, a goalkeeper, and Oyegoke, a right-back who can also play further forward, both graduated from the Hale End academy.
Midfielder Miguel Azeez was also present along with Nathan Butler-Oyedeji.
It is expected that goalkeeper Hubert Graczyk, defender Mazeed Ogungbo and winger Kido Taylor-Hart, all of whom have already featured for the U18s, will also be part of this scholarship intake along with Romanian midfielder Catalin Cirjan.
However, there remains uncertainty over the future of the highly rated Yunus Musah, who has been linked with Valencia.
