Three-year contract agreed: Arsenal announce first summer signing of the Unai Emery era


Arsenal have completed the signing of young goalkeeper Karl Jakob Hein.

The youngster is considered by many as one of the most interesting youngsters in Estonia and enjoyed trials with Manchester United, Brighton and Hove Albion and Arsenal in recent months.

Estonian club Jalgpalliklubi FC Nomme United confirmed the departure of the youngster on their official Facebook page.

Hein has signed a one-year scholarship deal and and a three-year professional contract will be offered if he impresses the club.

Mart Poom, goalkeeping coach of the Estonia national football team, was full of praise for the youngster after the transfer was completed.

"The first year is the study of the academy, in other words, he is on a scholarship," he said.

"Two years later, he will be able to play at U18 level, and then he will be in the U23 age class. Then it depends on him.

"We hope he will one day reach the first-team.

"This is definitely very difficult, but not impossible."
