Crystal Palace have fended off competition from Arsenal to sign Belgian striker Jason Eyenga-Lokilo.
The 16-year-old was previously with Anderlecht’s academy but apparently left the club in the summer after a contract row with their management.
Arsenal had taken the player on trial in the past and were said to be keen on signing him, but Palace have now beaten the Gunners to a deal.
Eyenga-Lokilo confirmed the deal on Twitter and posted pictures signing his contract.
The frontman will start his career in the Eagles’ Under-18 team.
