DONE DEAL: Crewe sign Arsenal goalkeeper Arthur Okonkwo


Crewe Alexandra have signed Arsenal goalkeeper Arthur Okonkwo.

League Two Crewe Alexandra signed the academy product on loan for the season.

Okonkwo, 21, is the first to go - yet he is the one who the Gunners believe can eventually make a first-team breakthrough.

Selling the Londoner this transfer window was out of the question.

Instead the Gunners "look forward to seeing his continued development" with Crewe rather than in Under-23s football.

Okonkwo made the Arsenal matchday squad seven times but has yet to make a senior appearance.

His temporary exit leaves Gunners' U21 aces Karl Hein and James Hillson competing for promotion to the first-team squad.
