Youngster rejects Arsenal's offer and opts to move to Brentford

18-year-old will go straight into the senior setup, but he was a regular for Arsenal’s youth sides last year and he was clearly highly rated if they were offering him a pro contract.

The defender shocked the club when he turned down the club’s offer of a professional contract, and he is now expected to find himself a new club over the coming months.

He can play as a midfielder, though is now mainly a right-back but has also operated in the opposite full-back berth as well as at the heart of the defence.

Brentford have a fascinating setup as they’ve spurred the traditional U23 league in favour of a B team who play friendlies against teams from all over Europe, and it looks like Arsenal defender Daniel Oyegoke is going to join Brentford.

Oyegoke joined Arsenal from Barnet in 2017 and made his debut for the U18s against Chelsea as an U15 player.

The player with much potential, the England youth international was involved with the first-team in pre-season last year, but thankfully Arsenal have another right-back prospect to call upon in Brooke Norton-Cuffy.
