Arsenal teenager in discussions with 'several clubs' and likely to move

Emirates Inside

Arsenal teenager Kyle Ebecilio is likely to follow Martin Angha's exit from the club.

If Arsenal fans were disappointed to see Swiss under-19 captain Martin Angha sign a deal with German side Nuremberg this week, then they should prepare for more bad news.

Hardly of catastrophic proportions, but the exit of another talented teenager could just be on the cards.

The player in question is Dutch teenager Kyle Ebecilio, who was signed from Feyenoord at the age of just 16.

Now 19-years-old, the midfielder could be heading for a return to Holland, after reports in the Netherlands claimed there are three clubs interested in signing him.

De Telegraaf reported two days ago that Ebecilio is interesting clubs back in his homeland, and in Belgium.

His contract expires at the end of the season, and Arsenal are unlikely to stand in his way and offer him a new deal if he is able to find a better chance of first team football elsewhere.

Belgian side Anderlecht are in the hunt to sign him, but there is more serious interest from Holland, from PSV and FC Twente.

The report claims that the midfielder was in attendance at Twente's weekend match against Roda as a guest of the club, while in talks over a move.

With his contract running down, he is permitted to hold talks over a transfer.

And today his spokesman told the same newspaper: "We’ve had good discussions with several clubsKyle is now taking the time to make his choice"

Ebecilio caught the attention of Arsenal when he won the Golden Player Award at the under-17 European Championships for Holland, and he is the cousin of Chelsea starlet Jeffrey Bruma.

This season Ebecilio has scored three goals in five matches for Holland's under-17 side.

He has also featured in Arsenal's under-21 team, most recently playing 24 minutes as a substitute in the 3-2 defeat to Liverpool.

This season for the under-21s he has scored three goals in eight appearances, most recently in a 2-0 win over Southampton on March 11.

Would Ebecilio be a loss for Arsenal if he moves on?
