Arsenal Banter brings you latest update on Arsenal news from top media sites like Daily Mail, Metro, The Express, The Independent, The Telegraph, SkySports and so on.
Arsenal have announced that Zech Medley has penned his first professional contract with the club. The defender moved to the Emirates last season and has now signed a new deal for the club.
He is an England youth international and has appeared regularly for Arsenal’s under 18s since he moved to the club in December.
He moved across London from rivals Chelsea.
Medley is 6’4″ and started out his playing career as a winger. He turned to being a full back and eventually he is now at the centre of defence.
He has spoken about the differences between the two clubs and has praised Arsenal for their emphasis on technique.
Of course, there is a long way to go for him to ever break into first team but this is the first big step on the road to the top and the journey of a thousand mile starts with a step.
News that will please fans of the club is that he is also a boyhood Arsenal fan.
