Young goalkeeper Ryan Huddart has signed professional terms with the Club.

Huddart, who turned 17 this week, has been a mainstay for Carl Laraman’s Under-18s side this season, making 13 appearances in the Premier Academy League.

The talented stopper, who joined the Club as a scholar last summer from Charlton Athletic, has already won international honours with England at under-16s level.

Everyone at Arsenal would like to congratulate Ryan on his first professional contract and we look forward to his continued progression with the Club.
