Nico Yennaris has joined Championship side AFC Bournemouth on loan until January 2, 2014.

The 20-year-old midfielder has progressed through the Arsenal Academy to feature four times for the first team so far, and made his Premier League debut against Manchester United at Emirates Stadium in January 2012.

A regular at under-21 level, Yennaris also captained an Arsenal Under-19 side to the finals weekend of the NextGen Series, an elite European youth competition, last season.

The Leytonstone-born youngster joins the Cherries to gain further first-team experience.

Everyone at Arsenal Football Club wishes Nico well for his time at Dean Court.
