Although the transfer window is closed, clubs can still sign players who are not attached to any club. And after signing Mesut Ozil in a record breaking deal, Arsenal fans have more good news to be happy about. Just few minutes ago, high rated centre back Semi Ajayi after the 19 year old centre back was refusing to sign a new deal at Carlthon Athletic. The player himself confirm the news to his followers on twitter by saying :
“Delighted to announce that I have officially signed for @Arsenal FC. Can’t wait to see what the next two seasons here have in store for me.”
From all indication, the player has signed a 2 years deal with the gunners. The player who is a Under 21 player has signed for Arsenal after undergoing trials with the club. During the trials, he was reported to have played 6 games scoring once against Norwich.
Arsenal were not the only one interested in signing the player. Norwich had made him a 6 months offer which he turned down just before Arsenal offered him a 6 weeks trial which has now led to the gunners giving him a 2 years contract.
