[Photo] Done Deal! ‘Wonderkid’ Confirms Arsenal Move On Twitter

By on July 3, 2014

Highly rated England youth international Ben Sheaf has confirmed his move to Arsenal from West Ham on Twitter.

The 16-year-old came through the youth ranks at Upton Park and was not only viewed as one of their brightest young talents, but he’s also regarded as one of the best young midfielders in Britain.

Sheaf has already represented England at Under-16 level and is tipped to go on and become a future senior international, so he’s certainly an exciting addition to our youth system.

The teenager makes the move to Arsenal after rejecting a new contract at West Ham and we will have to pay the Hammers a small amount of compensation for his signature.

Sheaf confirmed the move on his official Twitter account, posting a photo in Arsenal’s PUMA training kit with his new team-mate.

Welcome to Arsenal, Ben. Good luck kid!
