Previously mostly deployed at left-back, Jeffcott is now mainly used at centre-back and will be part of the U21 squad this season.

The Northern Ireland youth international endured frustration with injuries last season, but he made his debut for the U21s against Derby County and also trained with the first-team at Emirates Stadium.

A player who reads the game well and is a committed performer, Jeffcott will hope to become an important player for the U21s this campaign.
