Done deal: Former Chelsea defender has signed for Arsenal after agreeing personal terms with the Gunners


Arsenal have announced on their official website that Zech Medley has signed his first professional contract with the club.

The 17-year-old defender made the decision to swap the Chelsea academy to continue his development with the Gunners in December of last year.

He says his near-future objective is to be a regular in the Under-18s before making it to the senior squad.

"I'm working hard to cement a spot in the under-18s and improving my all-round game, especially heading, tackling and positioning," he told the club's official website.

"I came to Arsenal because I wasn't getting the game time with Chelsea. I arrived last October on a trial and after two weeks I was told that Arsenal were happy to sign me.

"I like to watch the defending style of Laurent Koscielny. His fight, determination, positioning and physical approach are all aspects that I admire and try to absorb into the way I play."
