Young midfielder Tim Akinola has joined us after leaving Huddersfield Town at the end of last season.
The 19-year-old, who impressed in Huddersfield’s youth set-up, has met up with his new team-mates and is already training with our under-23s and academy players ahead of the new season.
Before joining Huddersfield Town in June 2019, Tim was at Lincoln City, where his progress was rewarded by breaking into the first-team squad in the EFL Trophy. During his time with Lincoln City, Tim also had a spell on loan with non-league side Lincoln United in January 2019.
Predominantly a central midfielder, Tim, who started his youth career at League Two side Mansfield Town, is eligible to represent both Nigeria and England.
We welcome Tim to Arsenal and look forward to supporting him with his continued development.
The deal is subject to the completion of regulatory processes.
