Kelechi Nwakali joins Maastricht on loan

Kelechi Nwakali

Kelechi Nwakali has joined Dutch side Maastricht on loan for the rest of the season.

The 18 year-old signed for the Gunners this summer, from the Diamond Football Academy in Nigeria.

He captained the Golden Eaglets to victory in the Fifa Under-17 World Cup in Chile last year, also winning the Player of the Tournament award.

With his Dutch work permit now granted, the young midfielder heads to Maastricht to gain first team experience. He will join up with new Gunners teammate Stefan O’Connor, who is also on loan with the Eerste Divisie side.

We wish Kelechi well for the season ahead.
