Arsenal have reached an agreement with Dutch side Go Ahead Eagles to take youngster Dan Crowley on loan until the end of the season.
Crowley who spent part of the first half of this season at Oxford United is now set to move abroad. The young midfielder had a successful trial at the Eredivisie side last month, impressing coach Han de Koning in the process and will now join them for the second half of the season.
Crowley is one of the numerous talented players in Arsenal academy but the youngster has not been able to get anywhere near Wenger’s first team due to the high level of competition for places in the squad.
The youngster was part of Arsenal’s preseason tour in 2015 and he is one who is expected to have a big future if he can fulfill his potential and for him to be able to do that, he needs to make the most of this loan opportunity.
Go Ahead Eagles technical manager Dennis Bekking is happy to sign the midfielder and has praised his quality saying, as quoted by Daily Cannon:
”Crowley has made quite an impression. He belongs in terms of technical skills among the better talents from Arsenal, but in England they are also asked other things.
”He’s strong on the ball and can play well between the lines.
“We see in him a number 10, but Crowley also left hanging from the feet [?]”
The deal is expected to be finalized when the winter transfer window opens. Hopefully, this loan spell will help improve young man as a player.
