The 22-year-old will play in the Belgian top-flight for the remainder of the season after securing his sixth loan deal in five years

Belgian First Division side Sint-Truiden have announced the loan signing of Chuba Akpom from Arsenal.

The Arsenal youngster will feature for the Canaries until the end of the 2017-18 in his sixth loan spell after representing Coventry City, Brentford, Nottingham Forest, Hull City and Brighton & Hove Albion previously.

The Anglo-Nigerian forward was linked to several English Championship teams this transfer window before finally switching to the Belgian top-flight on the transfer deadline day.

Akpom, who joined the Gunners at age of six, made his Premier League bow against Sunderland in September 2013 and has been restricted to just 12 senior appearances thus far.

"English attacker Chuba Akpom signed a lease on Stayen today until the end of this season. The 22-year-old Akpom comes over from Arsenal where he has been playing football since his youth," the club wrote on its website.
