Image: Youngster rejects Arsenal contract with Brentford move on the cards

Arsenal youngster Daniel Oyegoke is linked with a move to newly-promoted Premier League side Brentford this summer.

The defender shocked the club when he turned down the club’s offer of a professional contract, and he is now expected to find himself a new club over the coming months.

Brentford are claimed to be a possible destination for the 18 year-old, but it remains to be seen whether he will complete that move.

Oyegoke played most of his football with the Arsenal Under-23s this season, despite being eligible for the younger category, and it remains to be seen why he would turn down our offer of his first professional contract.

    And Ballard off to Millwall on loan….?

    Was it not a surprise the contract was offered. What would a sacked Bould have developed in an Eighteen years old, so, so good to get that offer so early. His coach job was just condemned.

    Unfortunately, we seem to have a surfeit of talented youngsters (unlike Spurs and some other clubs), so it’s in his interest to move to a club where he has a chance of first team football. At least at Brentford he stands a chance of being on the bench.

  4. Bobs says:

    I bet our CB youngsters will now be scared to sign a contract now seeing what happened to Mcguiness, Mavro and Saliba without been given any chance to perform.

    The interesting thing is that Arsenal should be out chasing a right back, so Oyegoke must be ranked below Bellerin, Chambers, AMN and Soares. You can understand why he doesn’t want to stay around and be patient given the treatment of other Academy prospects coming through.
    I look forward to following his development and progress at Brentford.
