Ovie Ejeheri has signed his first professional contract.
The 18-year-old goalkeeper joined our academy aged eight. A towering keeper, Ovie developed through the Arsenal Academy age groups and made it in to the matchday squad three times for our U23s side last season.
"It’s a very, very special day for me," Ovie told Arsenal.com. "My mum and my dad, they’ve helped me from my whole career, taking me to training, even when it was very, very hard for them, so it’s a good moment for me and them. I'm really excited to keep this journey going."
Everyone at Arsenal would like to congratulate Ovie on his first professional contract and we look forward to seeing his continued development.
