Arsenal youngster Nicholas Yennaris signs new deal

Despite having only signed a new deal in November, the 19-year-old has been rewarded for his continued progression at the Emirates with improved terms after a successful pre-season

Nicholas Yennaris has signed a new contract at Arsenal, the club have confirmed.

Having made his debut for the first-team against Bolton in the League Cup last October, the 19-year-old was rewarded with a new contract the following month.

An FA Cup debut followed – coming on for Francis Coquelin in the 1-0 win over Leeds United - before Yennaris made his Premier League bow as a substutite against Manchester United in January.

The versatile teenager, who can play at full-back but prefers a centre-midfield role, was then loaned out to League One side Notts County where he made two appearances.

So far he has featured twice in Arsenal’s pre-season tour of Asia, and it seems that he has once again impressed and has committed his long-term future to the club after penning improved terms for the second time in 12 months.
