Arsenal Signs Nigeria's 9-Year-Old Jayden Adetiba after playing trial in south Africa

Arsenal added to his underage lists by signing a nine-year-old who impressed the academy's staff during a five-week trial in South Africa.

Jayden Adetiba, who was born in Nigeria and lived in the UK, is a fan of Arsenal and saw the signing of the youth condition by his father John, with the image posted on Twitter.

"The male joins the big club !!" Adetiba's father wrote beside the picture of his son sitting at a table in front of the Arsenal summit in a Gunners shirt.

Adetiba spent most of his life in South Africa and played for SuperSport United Soccer School, but he continues to be interested in Arsenal.

"I thank God and my parents for that," Adetiba told the Sun. "I am very happy, I train at the academy three times a week and we have a competition on weekends.

"What's amazing is that I've always been a fan of Arsenal and I'm going to work hard every day to form the first team."

Adetiba cites the example of the Italian Alex Iwobi (22) from Nigeria, whom he wants to follow at Arsenal, and also idolized Cristiano Ronaldo.

"Ronaldo because of his hard work and Iwobi because he was at the Arsenal Academy at the age of seven and now plays for the first team," he added.

The two older brothers of Adetiba are also promising football players, the oldest having recently signed at the Ebbsfleet United Academy and the other with a local team.
