Little known Nigeria born, Arsenal youngster Joseph Olowu on Friday signed his first professional contract with the English premier league side.
Olowu, a graduate of the club’s Hale End
academy, made his debut for Arsenal’s U23s
during the first year of his scholarship and has made three appearances at that level this season, while he has also continued to feature for the U18s.
The 18 year old centre back missed several games through injury but is nearing a return
to full fitness and will now be looking to
continue his development having secured his short-term future at the club.
The player is itching to follow the foot step of another Nigerian star Alex Iwobi, by making the first team soonest.
