Hein - Slowly but surely I’ve made good progress

Karl Hein hit the headlines last week with an outstanding performance for Estonia as they held Wales to a goalless draw in World Cup qualifying.

Now things have got even better for the 19-year-old after he signed a new long-term contract for us. So how does he feel about his journey at the club so far - and what are his hopes for the future?

“It means a lot to extend my contract with this big club, a big club in Europe, a massive club with traditions. I'm very happy, very happy,” he told Arsenal Media.

“It's been a long process [at Arsenal]. First year I had quite a long-term injury with my wrist, it was a tough time but I think I went through it well. Next season was good, did well with the 23s and then step by step I got involved in the national team, got involved more with the first team and slowly but surely it's been good progress.

“My ambitions are to play for Arsenal ultimately, train hard, keep the progress going and then hopefully get my chance.

“Step by step, every day I feel more comfortable and it's been a good pre-season and I'm looking forward to this season.”
