Arse­nal loan out Nwakali

Daily Trust - - SPORT -

Premier League side Arse­nal will ship out Nige­ria U-20 skip­per Kelechi Nwakali over­seas on loan, AfricanFoot­ball.com has been ex­clu­sively in­formed.

Nwakali turned 18 last month and he will sign a five-year pro­fes­sional con­tract with the London Gun­ners af­ter he would have led the Fly­ing Ea­gles to qual­ify for next year’s U-20 AFCON later this month.

“Nwakali is not in (Arsene) Wenger’s im­me­di­ate plans and it will take some time be­fore his ap­pli­ca­tion for a work per­mit is pro­cessed and so it is most likely he will be sent out on loan pos­si­bly to a club in Bel­gium,” a top source told AfricanFoot­ball.com.
