Official: Defender joins Arsenal on 2 year-deal


19 year-old defender Semi Ajayi joined Arsenal today on a two-year deal. The teenage centre-back has been on trial with Arsenal for over a month and has impressed enough for Arsenal to offer him a contract. The defender follows in the footsteps of Carl Jenkinson by making the move from Charlton to Arsenal.

Born in Crayford Ajayi is able to play for either England or Nigeria. He has represented the latter at youth level already. He joins for a small compensation fee which will be paid to Charlton. The player confirmed the move via his Twitter account:
