Gooner Fanzine print subscriber Charlie Patino has signed his first professional contract with Arsenal!
The 17-year-old midfielder and Arsenal Academy graduate has impressed club hierachy for a long time now, with his deal recognition of that fact.
England international Charlie has played for a higher age group every season for Arsenal, as well as the Three Lions.
As a 14-year-old, Charlie captained England U16s against Spain, and in the same year he made his debut for our U18s against Chelsea.
He has played consistently for our U18s this season, and is known for his technical ability and agility in midfield.
An Arsenal statement praised the talented teenager saying: "We congratulate Charlie on his first pro contract and look forward to supporting him with his continued development."
