New Arsenal signing reveals his favourite position ahead of the new season


New Arsenal signing Rob Holding says competition in the defensive department will allow him to "prove his worth".

The 20-year-old agreed a long-term deal with the Gunners as he becomes the club's third summer signing.

He is not expected to be a regular in Arsene Wenger's squad as he revealed that his favourite position on the pitch is at the heart of the defensive department.

"There's massive competition here [in the defensive department] and it will only improve me," he told the club's official website.

"It will push me to new boundaries and hopefully I can prove my worth.

"It [leaving Bolton] was tough.

"Bolton will always have a place in my heart and I'll always be keeping an eye on their results. I've got loads of friends there and coaches who I'll still talk to there, so I'll always stay in touch and I wish them the best for the future.

"I've watched them [Arsenal] on the TV mainly. I've never been down to London. They've always played nice football, they've got a reputation for playing nice football. That suits me and hopefully I can bring what I do.

"It's definitely the style of football [that I admire] - the way they pass it, those sharp one-twos around the box.

"Centre-back [is definitely my natural position]. I felt more at home at centre-back than I was at right-back.
