James Sweet has signed his first professional contract with the club.
The England youth international has been a key player for us across the age groups, since joining our academy aged eight.
Although an attacking-minded midfielder, the 18-year-old showcases his defensive duties when playing as a box-to-box midfielder. Several impressive performances last season saw James scoring once and assisting nine times in 25 appearances for our U-18s.
“It feels amazing,” James told Arsenal Media.
“I’ve supported this club since I was a young boy and I’m excited to keep going.”
Everyone at the club would like to congratulate James on signing his first professional contract and we look forward to seeing his continued development.
