Arsenal teenager Eddie Nketiah has signed a new “long-term” deal at the club.
The striker is among three youngsters to have committed their futures to the club by signing new long-term contracts.
Nketiah shot to prominence during last month’s EFL Cup win over Norwich, scoring with his first touch to send the fifth round tie into extra time before sending Arsenal through to a quarter final against West Ham with the winning goal.
The 18-year-old, English born Ghanaian , has made three other first team appearances and has been singled out for praise by Arsene Wenger.
Delighted to have signed a new long term deal with @Arsenal , looking forward to pushing on and continuing my development at this great club. Thanks to my family and friends for all the support, God is good!🙏🏾 pic.twitter.com/CnFrKaHynV
