John Spicer has completed a permanent transfer to Football League One side AFC Bournemouth for an undisclosed fee.

Spicer, 21, became a scholar at Arsenal in the summer of 2000 and signed professional forms in July 2001. He made his first-team debut in the Carling Cup tie with Rotherham United last season, converting a penalty in the shoot-out.

The England Youth International made more appearances (25) for Arsenal's reserves than any other player last season.

Everyone at Arsenal wishes John the best of luck at Bournemouth.
