Arsenal have announced the signing of Bolton Wanderers defender Rob Holding.
The 20-year-old came through the ranks at Bolton before breaking into the first team 12 months ago and went on to immediately establish himself in the side.
Wanderers finished bottom of the Championship as they dropped down to the third tier but that did not stop Holding picking up the club’s player of the season award.
Arsenal announced his signing on Friday, with both the fee and length of contract undisclosed, to make the versatile defender their third summer acquisition.
Harding follows Granit Xhaka and Takuma Asano in moving to the Emirates Stadium but it remains to be seen if he will be involved with the first team straight away.
