Folarin Balogun signs new Arsenal deal


Arsenal striker, Folarin Balogun, has signed a new long-term contract with the club.

The 19-year-old was approaching the final months of his contract in north London, but has now committed his long-term future to the Gunners.

Having been at the club since he was nine, Balogun is now determined to follow the likes of Emile Smith Rowe and Bukayo Saka in nailing down a first-team role.

“So I came here at nine,” Balogun told Arsenal Media.

“I remember being at Hale End and coming into the training ground for the first time and seeing all the older boys training and I was just thinking to myself, ‘These are the same guys you see on TV.’

“From that age, straight away, I just had a drive and ambition to be that guy eventually. As time has gone on, I’ve seen loads of different coaches help me in my career. Now I could just see that the work I’ve put in over the years is starting to pay off.”
