Done Deal: Club announce agreement has been reached with Arsenal for transfer of defender


Arsenal defender Stefan O'Connor has left the club to join MVV Maastricht on a season-long loan.

The youngster made his official debut for the Gunners in a Champions League tie against Galatasaray two years ago and was praised by manager Arsene Wenger.

He is tipped by many for an enormously bright future at the Emirates and Maastricht boss Ron Elsen was delighted after the transfer was concluded.

"Despite his height and physical, he has great athletic ability," he told the club's official website.

"Stefan already shows that he has not come into the picture for nothing at Crystal Palace and Arsenal with his 19-years.

"At his age to train with guys like Ramsey, Sanogo and Podolski is obviously a unique and valuable experience, like his Champions League debut.

"Stefan must potentially further develop at MVV and compete to become even better."
