Daniel Ballard has joined Championship side Sunderland in a permanent move.
The Northern Ireland international spent last season on loan at Millwall, where he made a total of 32 appearances during a successful spell with the south London club.
The 22-year-old was a product of our Hale End academy and had been at the club since he was eight years old, progressing to a scholar in July 2016, which was followed by his first professional contract in June 2018.
Ballard also spent valuable time on loan at Swindon Town and Blackpool during his Arsenal career.
We wish Daniel all the best for his future with Sunderland, he will always be a valued part of the Arsenal family.
The deal is subject to the completion of regulatory processes.
