Mark McGuinness has joined League One side Ipswich Town on loan until the end of the season.
The 19-year-old defender has been with us since he was ten years old and has progressed through our Hale End academy, signing his first professional contract in April 2019.
Mark has been a regular in our youth sides during his development in recent years, featuring prominently in our under-18s and last season making his debut for the under-23s.
The Republic of Ireland youth international trained regularly with the first team squad this pre-season, and made an impact in the friendly match at Milton Keynes Dons in August, scoring in a 4-1 win.
He then went on to deliver an outstanding performance against Ipswich Town in the Leasing.com Trophy, guiding our under-21s to a hard-fought 2-1 victory.
Everyone at Arsenal wishes Mark all the best for his season with Ipswich Town.
The loan deal is subject to the completion of regulatory processes.
