Arsenal have confirmed they have completed the signing of non-league star Cohen Bramall from Hednesford Town.

The left-back will join up with the Gunners' under-23 side after impressing in a recent trial.

Bramall initially spent two days with the north London club following a recommendation from scout Brian McDermott.

And after being given the chance to showcase his talents in front of manager Arsene Wenger, Bramall has done enough to convince the Premier League side to sign him up.

Speaking about the move, Wenger told the club's official website: “I believe that when you go down [to non-league football], there’s mental selection.

"It’s a mental test - do you love football enough? 

"Are you ready enough to fight [to show] that you are above this level and that you absolutely want to come back?

"Players like Giroud and Koscielny have had that test. They are similar to that. Once they get up, they really mean it.

"[Bramall] is a young, promising left back who has a lack of experience at the top level but who has fantastic ingredients. 

"He has tremendous pace, a good left foot, a great desire to do well. Overall, he’s a very exciting prospect."
