Arsenal have completed the signing of Feyenoord player on a free transfer

Arsenal have completed the signing of Salah-Eddine from Feyenoord on a free transfer. The 17-year-old midfielder will go straight into the club’s youth set-up and compete for a spot in the Under-23 side having left the Dutch club earlier this summer.

‘It feels great to join a massive club like Arsenal,’ said the teenager following confirmation of his signing. ‘It’s a good environment for me to work on my development and hopefully through the academy I can become a first-team player.

‘They first contacted my dad and then I went there for a week just to see what the club is all about, and after that they didn’t really have to say anything. I immediately knew that it was the right club for me.’
