Arsenal have confirmed that youngster Zech Medley has signed his first professional contract with the club.
The 17-year-old defender joined the Gunners from Chelsea in December and has impressed in the youth setup.
He has established himself as a regular for England U18 national team and is a player considered by Arsenal staff to have excellent potential.
The technically gifted teenager emphasised earlier this year that Arsenal’s focus on possession based football was a major factor in his decision to move to the north London club.
Medley had played for Chelsea since the age of eight, but was surprisingly released by the Blues in November last year.
He was offered a trial at the Emirates six weeks later, and impressed enough to earn a scholarship deal.
