ARSENAL YOUNGSTER SIGNS CONTRACT EXTENSION AND “CAN’T WAIT TO GET BACK” PLAYING

Published

Arsenal youngster James Hillson has signed a contract extension with the club.

James Hillson

The 18-year-old joined the Gunners from Reading back in February and has provided competition for Under 18s goalkeeper Arthur Okonkwo with Karl Hein out injured.

Hillson will look to become a mainstay in the youth set-up with Matt Macey likely to be released when his contract expires this summer.

“Delighted to announce that I have extended my contract with Arsenal, can’t wait to get back and continue my grind,” wrote Hillson on Instagram.

Bernd Leno has been one of Arsenal’s most improved players this season with a series of impressive performances behind the stick.

Argentine shot stopper Emi Martinez remains his deputy, with at least one of Okonkwo, Hein and Hillson expected to spend time on loan next campaign.

PICTURES: Thiago Silva and Ben Chilwell join Chelsea training

Published

Chelsea returned to training today (Wednesday) at Cobham, and there were two new faces joining the rest of the squad, Thiago Silva and Ben Chilwell. The two summer arrivals had yet to train with the squad since signing, dealing with quarantine (presumably) and heel injury issues, respectively.

It’s unclear if either will be fit and ready for this weekend’s match against Liverpool, but it’s still nice to see them in training with the rest of the group! (Those who played on Monday apparently had a lighter session, but were all out there nonetheless.)

There’s no word on how close Hakim Ziyech and Christian Pulisic may be. Ziyech is probably still a couple weeks out with his knee problem, at least, but Pulisic was supposed to be close before suffering a potential setback with his hamstring late last week. Neither were pictured in training, and one would assume their presence would get emphasized had they been there.
