Arsenal midfielder Jack Jebb sweating over knee injury scan

The Arsenal youngster is currently on loan at Stevenage Borough.

When Jack Jebb first started to make his name at Arsenal he was being immediately compared to Jack Wilshere, mostly because he plays midfield and is called Jack.

Of course there is more to it than that. He is a technically gifted midfield player with plenty of potential to go far in the game, even if his talent does not match that of his namesake.

But in recent times things have been difficult for Jebb. There was the furore over an FA charge for racist language a year ago and he has struggled for regular football in the under-21s and not progressed like he should have, considering his early promise.

But he took the brave step of going out on loan earlier in the season, joining Stevenage Borough of League Two.

Things have gone OK for him in Hertfordshire. He has played four times in the league and also featured in the FA Cup. He even managed a goal against Bishop's Stortford in the Herts Senior Cup competition.

Unfortunately however it seems that the Arsenal curse has struck again as another injury has hit a contracted player.

The young midfielder has injured his knee in training and confirmed he had undergone a scan on the problem...

It certainly doesn't sound good from the player and Arsenal will hope that he is back fighting fit in no time for Stevenage so he can continue to grow into the talented player many have predicted.

Get well Jack!
