BIOGRAPHY
Born: October 25, 1995
Position: Defender

Ball-playing German centre back Leander joined Arsenal from Hertha Berlin last season after a successful trial period at London Colney.

The pacy defender impressed Liam Brady and his team with his technical ability on the ball and dynamic all-round defensive game.

Good both in the air and on the ground, Leander was an unused substitute for the Under-18s towards the end of last season.
