Arsenal to send top starlet to Coventry on loan with an option to buy

Championship new boys, Coventry has secured a season-long loan deal with Arsenal for Ben Sheaf, with the option of making it permanent.

The young midfielder is one of the shining lights of the Arsenal youth teams and he was very close to joining the likes of Bukayo Saka and Joe Willock in the Arsenal first team before injury struck.

He has remained an impressive member of the youth setup and he has his eyes set on playing for the Arsenal first team.

For now, he will have to spend the season out on loan away from the Emirates and hopefully, he will prove his worth and catch the attention of Mikel Arteta.

Sheaf spent last season on loan at League One side, Doncaster before returning to challenge for a spot in the senior squad.

Arsenal is currently rebuilding their team and there is hardly room for a player that isn’t ready to give a top performance on a weekly basis.

He has had a spell at Stevenage earlier in his career and joining Coventry will be his third temporary stint, according to Sun Sports.

The likes of Saka and Eddie Nketiah has shown that Arsenal will give chances to teenage stars who have proven their worth and Sheaf will hope to be next.

    1. The Academy is doing a great job of developing these young players. They are ambitious and obviously good enough to play for the teams that come after them, but naturally haven’t progressed enough to make the first team squad at the Arsenal. I will be disappointed if Arsenal inserts an option for Coventry City to buy Ben Sheaf at the end of the loan. He has real potential to really improve in the next 12 months. If he is to be sold, a buy back option or sell on clause must be included in the transfer contract.
      For Acemane to make the comment that it hasn’t “worked out” ie that a young player like Ben Sheaf hasn’t made the first team squad at Arsenal, is ridiculous.

  1. Coventry will bring out the best in him he won’t get that chance at arsenal he’s not good enough at the moment but for his career it a good move for him coventry will sell him back to a premier club when they improve his potential thats fact coventry can only survive this way.

  2. Seems to be a good lad. Good luck to him and hope he does well at Coventry so that within the next 12 months MA can have a good look at him and consider him for the Arsenal first team. Hats off to the Academy for developing these talented youngsters. By the way WestHam are reportedly offering Phillipe Anderson to Arsenal on loan. A creative midfielder who could be useful to Arsenal.
