Arsenal have completed the signing of Daniel Ballard on a scholarship, after handing the 16-year-old terms, per reports.
Ballard came through the Hale End Academy and Arsenal have only just confirmed the news despite reports coming through two weeks ago that the contract had been signed.
Initially told he was going to be released by the club, the centre back was allegedly given a final chance to prove himself against Bayern Munich and then handed a two-year deal which all sounds a little unlikely if you ask me. Would Arsenal really change their mind to such a degree that they went from releasing a player to giving him a contract on the back of one game of football?
Goodluck to the lad.
