Goonersden brings you news from top football news sites from the likes of ESPN, SkySport, Daily Mail, Daily Star and Metro… We also Analyse football, player, transfer and predict Arsenal starting line-up.
Arsenal midfielder Gedion Zelalem has joined Dutch side VVVVenlo on loan according to reports making the round.
Reports states Zelalem arrived at the club’s training ground yesterday afternoon and underwent medical tests after a deal was agreed between the two clubs.
De Telegraaf are reporting that Arsenal have already offered a contract extension to the talented 19-year-old midfielder to fend off offers from. German club Borussia Dortmund who will be disappointed after losing out on him.
The youngster was supposed to be a free agent in the summer and Dortmund were looking to sign him on a free transfer.
There is no doubt that Zelalem will benefit more from this switch than if he were to stay at Arsenal.
I think this is a good move considering the reason for sending a player out on loan is to play regularly and Zelalem is likely to get that at VVVVenlo.
