Emile Smith Rowe joins Huddersfield Town on loan

Emile Smith Rowe has joined Championship side Huddersfield Town on loan for the remainder of the season.

The 19-year-old midfielder, who has developed through our Hale End youth academy, has been a part of the first-team squad for the past two seasons, making 12 appearances, including two in the Premier League.
After making an impressive impact on the first team, scoring three goals from his six appearances last season, Smith Rowe went on loan to Bundesliga team RB Leipzig, where although the experience greatly benefitted our young midfielder, injury restricted him to just three outings for the German side.
Croydon-born Smith Rowe, who has represented England at under-16, under-18, under-19 and under-20 levels, celebrated his 18th birthday in style with a fantastic display for the senior team against Paris Saint-Germain in the International Champions Cup pre-season competition in Singapore in July 2018.
Everyone at Arsenal wishes Emile all the best for his time with Huddersfield Town.
The loan is subject to the completion of regulatory processes.


'I am the biggest fanboy of Conor McGregor!'

When Conor McGregor named Kieran Tierney as his favourite footballer at a press conference in Russia in October, it was just another example of the pair's rapport.

While on the face of it an unlikely sporting friendship, UFC fighter McGregor formed a bond with Tierney while our left-back was playing for former club Celtic.

Tierney admits that he's a massive fan of the Irish mixed martial artist – and is sure to be tuning in when he makes his return at UFC246 on Saturday.

"I met him in Belfast at a UFC event and that's what started it off," Tierney told Arsenal Player.

"I am the biggest fanboy of Conor McGregor ever! Honestly, the documentaries I've watched... I've watched every video on YouTube, twice!

"For me to have a relationship with him [is great].

"I messaged him back and forth on Instagram, and sent him over a shirt that he wore and put on Instagram. To see that... I didn't get any sleep that night after I saw it!

"He supports me as well, so I'm delighted to just be friends with him."
