Alfred Mugabo no longer seems to have a future at Arsenal FC after being trialed out to Sheffield Wednesday.

Arsenal have a plethora of top young talents at the club one of which is Alfred Mugabo.

Such a talented prospect he was that this time last year Jack Wilshere told us all to watch out for him.

Last season was the talented midfielders first in the under-18s and he impressed in his debut season.

Now the 18-year-old has had a troublesome time in the youth team - suffering with injuries and a lack of form and despite being a full international for Rwanda he is all set to leave this summer.

Now, Arsenal youth expert Jeorge Bird has revealed that Mugabo is now on trial at Championship side Sheffield Wednesday - as they prepare to lose the talented but unfortunate midfielder this summer.

The teenager reportedly played for Wednesday’s Under-21 side against Leeds United last night - and the versatile star will be hoping to impress ahead of potentially getting a contract in the summer with the Championship side.

It is hard to believe that just a year after Jack Wilshere was bigging him up for a bright future things have turned around so drastically that he is no longer wanted at the club.

But this seems to be the case for the Rwandan international - whose future now seems away from Arsenal FC.
