Omar Rekik to join Sparta Rotterdam on loan

Omar Rekik

Omar Rekik has joined Dutch Eredivisie side Sparta Rotterdam on loan for the 2022/23 season.

The 20 year-old defender who joined us from Hertha Berlin in January 2021, was a regular with the under-23s last season, making 19 appearances, including 14 in the Premier League 2 campaign.

The central defender was born in the Netherlands, for whom he featured at under-18 level, but is now a senior international with Tunisia, making his debut in a 1-0 win over Mali in June 2021. Omar’s strong performances were rewarded with a place in the Tunisia squad for the Africa Cup of Nations 2022 held in Cameroon in January, where he made two appearances helping Tunisia reach the quarter-finals.

During his youth career, Omar also spent time at Feyenoord, Manchester City, PSV Eindhoven and Marseille.

Everyone at Arsenal wishes Omar all the best during his time with Sparta Rotterdam next season.

The loan is subject to the completion of regulatory processes.
