Jordi Osei-Tutu’s seven-year spell at Arsenal has come to an end, with the defender signing for Bundesliga club VfL Bochum on a permanent transfer.
Signed from Reading as a scholar in 2015, Osei-Tutu quickly progressed to professional terms and went on to be named on the bench for the first-team. He subsequently featured in pre-season under Unai Emery in 2018.
Osei-Tutu frequently impressed for Arsenal at U23s level but was strangely overlooked for first-team involvement. He was part of the Arsenal U23 side that won the Premier League 2 title in 2018.
He later headed out on a series of loan spells, playing for Bochum, Cardiff City, Nottingham Forest and Rotherham United. In recent years he has struggled with a series of injuries.
At the age of 23, it is the correct time for Osei-Tutu to move on and it is hoped that he can recapture the heights of his loan spell at Bochum.
