Reiss Nelson has signed a new long-term contract with us ahead of a season-long loan move to Bundesliga side Hoffenheim.
A product of our Hale End Academy, Reiss has made 16 first-team appearances. The 18-year-old forward was named Premier League 2 Player of the Year last season after impressing for our under-23s. He is an England youth international having played up to under-19 level.
Head coach Unai Emery said: “Reiss is a talented young player and we’re pleased that he has signed a new contract with us. This move to Hoffenheim will give him the chance to get regular high-level competition in the Bundesliga and is an important step in his development.”
We would like to wish Reiss well for his loan in Germany and we look forward to his continued development with us.
The loan is subject to the completion of regulatory processes.
