James Olayinka has joined League Two side Southend United until the end of January 2021.
An Arsenal Academy graduate, the 20 year-old midfielder has been at the club since he was seven years old.
He spent the first half of this year on loan at League Two side Northampton Town. James helped them to win the play-offs to get the club promoted to League One.
In 2019, James joined our first team’s pre-season tour in America, scoring a stunning goal in a 3-0 win against Colorado Rapids.
More recently, James was included in the squad for our Community Shield win over Liverpool in August.
Everyone at Arsenal wishes James all the best for his time at Southend United.
