Highly-rated goalkeeper Joao joined Arsenal from Benfica’s academy in the summer of 2015 on a long-term contract.
The Portugal U16 international will still be classed as a schoolboy this season but is scheduled to sign scholarship terms with the club ahead of the 2016/17 campaign.
Joao has already started training with Arsenal’s U18 squad and is likely to provide back-up to Hugo Keto at that level.
