Mazeed Ogungbo has signed his first professional contract.
The 18-year-old defender delivered a number of promising performances throughout 2020/21, making 14 appearances for our under-18s and featuring twice for our under-23s.
A Republic of Ireland youth international, Ogungbo is naturally a left back but has also stepped up to play as a central defender.
“I'm just so excited and so grateful to Arsenal that they've given me this opportunity,” Mazeed told Arsenal.com. "To be able to extend my time here is a real honour and I'm really excited for what the future holds here."
Everyone at Arsenal would like to congratulate Mazeed on his first professional contract and we look forward to seeing his continued development.
