James Olayinka has joined League Two side Northampton Town on loan until the end of the season.
The 19 year-old midfielder joined the club aged seven, and has progressed through our youth development ranks, making his Premier League 2 debut at the start of the 2018/19 season at just 17.
Olayinka’s progress was rewarded with a place in the first team squad's mid-season trip to Dubai in March 2019. He also travelled on the pre-season tour of the United States in July, where he scored a memorable goal in the win over Colorado Rapids in Denver.
The Arsenal academy graduate has made 10 appearances for our U-23s and youth sides this season, scoring in the Premier League 2 against Everton earlier in January.
Everyone at the club wishes James the best of luck for his time at Northampton Town, and we look forward to seeing his continued development.
