Academy scholar Jack Jebb has signed professional terms with the Club.

Jebb, a technically-gifted central midfielder, joined Arsenal’s academy a year early and has reaped the rewards, making his breakthrough into the under-18 side last season. He played seven times and scored his first goal with a fine free-kick against Leicester City.

He has continued his progression this term, starting each of the under-18s' four games in the Premier Academy League.

Jebb has also claimed international honours, representing England at both under-16 and under-17 level.

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