Premier League giants Arsenal have snapped up a nine-year-old Nigerian wonder kid Jayden Adetiba, after he impressed on trial.
The Gunners swooped to land Nigeria-born Jayden Adetiba, who used to live in the UK, after he dazzled the North London club following his five-week trial.
Jayden spent most of his life in South Africa and has been playing for the SuperSport United Soccer School.

A life-long Gunners fan, Adetiba spoke of his delight at earning a “dream” move.
“I thank God and my parents for this. I am very happy,” he said.
“I train three times a week at the academy and we have a match at the weekend.
“The amazing thing is, I have always been an Arsenal fan and I will work hard every day to make the first team.”
Adetiba is a huge fan of Cristiano Ronaldo and ranks Alex Iwobi as his favourite Arsenal ace.
He added: “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.”
So, will he be the next Kanu Nwankwo? We have to wait and see.
Nice one, though.
