Arsenal talent Jack Jebb comments on release from club after 11 years

Emirates Stadium

The 19-year-old will lave the club when his contract expires at the end of the month.

Yesterday saw the Premier League release the retained lists for all 20 clubs from the 2014-15 season. There were few surprises in store, including at Arsenal.

Their list contained the likes of injury prone talents Abou Diaby and Ryo Miyaichi and those that have not made the grade such as Semi Ajayi, Austin Lipman and Josh Vickers were all included.

As was Jack Jebb.

The talented midfielder, with a penchant for a special set-piece, was once highly regarded in the Arsenal youth team. However, his form dipped in recent times and he is now a free agent.

Jebb, who signed a professional contract with the club in September 2013, has also played for England under-17s and was dubbed the 'new Jack Wilshere' early in his emergence.

After his release he took to Twitter to comment on his departure from Arsenal after 11 years:

Jebb went out on loan to Stevenage in October 2014 but picked up a serious knee injury and only returned to action in March.

Plenty of Football League clubs are likely to be keen on giving Jebb a second crack at a professional career in the game.
