Arsenal have announced that youth prospect Nathan Tormey has signed his first professional contract with the club.
The 17-year-old winger is described by the Gunners as ‘technically gifted and pacey.’
As a boyhood Arsenal fan the Gunners will hope that he can continue his progress through the academy system all the way to the first team.
Formerly in Tottenham’s youth set-up, Tormey joined Arsenal at under-12 level.
Tormey was a part of Tottenham’s academy before switching to the Gunners. He revealed in an interview with the Gunners matchday programme:
‘I didn’t tell anyone I was an Arsenal fan for the entire time I was there!’
On the difference between Arsenal and Tottenham:
‘At Spurs there was more of an emphasis on running with the ball, whereas at Arsenal it’s more about passing and movement at speed.”
