  1. Re: Wellington Alves Da Silva

    Arsenal will push through a deal to sign Fluminense striker Wellington in the New Year, Young Guns understands.

    The 15-year-old starlet recently completed a 7 day trial with the Gunners, and after playing 45 minutes against Norwich Under 16’s last week, he left a massive impression on the coaching staff.

    Steve Gatting’s boys ran out 8-4 winners over their City counterparts, with the on trial Brazilian netting four. Fellow countryman Luis Gustavo Conte was also being assessed, he played the first half at centre back.

    Wellington’s finishing prowess was highlighted yesterday on Young Guns with this video, and it seems he continued that form during his stay in England. It will now be up to Steve Rowley and South American scout Sandro Orlandelli to broker the deal for the prospect.

    Fluminense’s chairman has already spoken of his desire to keep the Brazil Under 16 international, yet the players parents are keen to secure a contract with the Gunners.

    The deal is expected to go through towards the end of next month. It would prove to be a significant coup for Arsenal, who already boast South American youngsters in the form of Denílson and Pedro Botelho.

    A versatile defender' date=' Anton joined the Club in the summer of 2007 having previously been on the books at League One side Northampton Town.

    ‘We saw him very late in the day,” said Arsenal’s Head of Youth Development, Liam Brady. “He did particularly well at Northampton, they let us bring him in for an assessment and we decided to sign him. He can play all across the back four, he's very quick and good on the ball. He was a late addition and a surprise one, but we're very happy to have him here at Arsenal.”

    "I am enjoying the training and feeling the benefits and,” he concludes. “I want to make the most of this chance I have now because playing for the Arsenal first team is my dream and I will do all I can to make that dream come true.”

    Anton: 'At 14 years of age I ran the 100m in 11.1 seconds. At Northampton I was by far the fastest.'

    Has also got a marvelous long throw.

    The transfer fee was thought to be around 300k ([url']http://worldofarsenal.co.uk/transfers/[/url])



    Currently not on the DB.

    blackwood returns from double trial faliure

    Arsenal defender Anton Blackwood has now returned to North London after failing to impress both Fulham and Crystal Palace during trails.

    The17-year-old is out of contract in the summer, and the early signs clearly suggest that the versatile former Northampton Town defender will be on his way come August.

    Fulham fielded the prospect in two Under 18 League fixtures, including a 5-1 defeat to Arsenal. He also turned out for Crystal Palace 3 days after the completion of his spell at Motspur Park, but the Eagles were equally unimpressed.

    It comes after a frustrating campaign which has seen Blackwood - a former 100m sprinter - make several mistakes for Steve Bould’s Under 18’s, and subsequently fail to make Neil Banfield’s depleted Reserves. However, a bench place for the Youth Cup run will no doubt have softened the blow.

    Anton will now be in contention for the forthcoming fixtures, but expect him to be back out on trials in the future.
