Also signing professional contracts were young striker Stephy Mavididi, who was in prolific form early in the season for the under-18s, earning a call up to Arsenal's under-21 side despite being just 16 at the time, and Finnish goalkeeper Hugo Keto.

There were more names signing scholarships deals who were already at the club last season including Joseph Willock, Marcus Agyei-Tabi, Tolaji Bola, Joshua Dasilva, Charlie Gilmour, and Edward Nketiah, Kostas Pileas, and Nathan Tella.

Mavididi took to Twitter to express his excitement, after a campaign which saw him earn an England youth international call-up.
