Breaking News: Ex Arsenal Star Winger Set For Shock Asia Switch

Former Arsenal youngster Jamie Pennant is on the move to Asia, with reports saying that he is set to undergo trial with Singapore club Tampines Rovers.

The now 32-year-old winger joined Arsenal as a 15-year-old for £2 million, becoming the club youngest debutant in 1999, and the youngest player to score a hat trick for the Gunners on his full league debut in 2003, but his off field issues limited him to just 12 appearances in an Arsenal shirt, before moving on to Birmingham.

The highlight of his journeyman career was appearing in the 2007 Champions league final with Liverpool, who he joined a season after signing for Birmingham.

Pennant has turned for Real Zaragoza in Spain, Stoke City and Wigan in England and Pune City in India ever since.

He was released by Wigan after they suffered relegation from the Championship at the end of last season, and has been a free agent ever since.

He would now undergo trial with Tampine Rovers who were runners up in the league in the just concluded season and are preparing for the qualifying stages of the Asian Champions league.
