Talented Nigerian winger Xavier Amaechi has been rewarded with a new deal by Premier League side Arsenal.
Arsenal youth-team expert Jeorge Bird writes on his blog that Amaechi has signed his first professional contract with the club on the same day he celebrated his 17th birthday.
Born January 5, 2001, the highly-rated offensive all-rounder signed a scholarship with Arsenal in the summer of 2017.
Amaechi is a product of Arsenal’s famous Hale End Academy, which produced the likes of Alex Iwobi, Chuba Akpom and Hal Robson-Kanu.
This season, he has featured in three matches and scored three goals for Arsenal’s U-18 team in the U-18 Premier League, having recovered from an injury which had kept him on the sidelines.
Xavier Amaechi has played for England at U-15 and U-16 level but those matches are not competitive in the eyes of FIFA.
