Arsenal offer professional contracts to Bandeira, Foran, Jeffcott, Sweet and Sagoe Jr

Arsenal have offered professional contracts to five second year scholars.

Midfielders Mauro Bandeira and James Sweet have both been offered deals along with defenders Taylor Foran and Henry Jeffcott as well as winger Charles Sagoe Jr. It was already previously announced that striker Billy Vigar has been offered a professional deal.

Goalkeeper Remy Mitchell and midfielder Luigi Gaspar are set to leave at the end of the month.

Bandeira produced some excellent displays for the U18s and has also been involved with the first-team in a friendly.

Centre-back Foran, meanwhile, travelled with the senior squad to Dubai, while Jeffcott, who can play at centre-back or left-back, has also progressed well.

Sweet, who can play in central midfield or out wide, provided nine assists for the U18s last season.

The versatile Sagoe Jr was one of the standout performers for the U18s last season. He can play as an attacking midfielder, a winger or as a striker.
