Exciting British-born Ghanaian striker Eddie Nketiah has committed his future to Arsenal on a long term deal.
The 18-year-old announced his presence in world football after taking only 15 seconds to score against Norwich City in the Carabao Cup – sending the game to extra time before rounding it up with the winner back in October.
Until his two-goal heroics against the Canaries, Nketiah hardly featured for the Gunners although he was part of the pre-season team far away in China.
The teenager has also enjoyed some minutes in the Europa Cup against BATE Borisov.
He together with two other players, midfielder Ben Sheaf and goalkeeper Matt Macey have all made contract extensions, and will be looking to follow in the footsteps of the likes of Theo Walcott, Aaron Ramsey and Jack Wilshere.
“We would like to congratulate all players on their new contracts and wish them every success as they continue their development with the club,” a statement from the club read.
Sadly enough, Nketiah was a Chelsea reject when he was a schoolboy, when concerns were raised over his physical presence.
