Arsenal teenager Brooke Norton-Cuffy has signed a new contract with the club, ending speculation he could leave north London next year.

The 18-year-old was in the final year of his contract and the Athletic report a number of clubs in the Premier League and across Europe were poised to pounce if he didn’t extend his stay.

However, the report states that an agreement has been reached and the defender will not be offered a permanent deal, although he could return on loan this season.

The right-back spent the second half of last season on loan to Premier League side Lincoln City, appearing in 17 games, scoring one goal and generally impressing with the Imps.

He was also part of the England squad that won the European Under-19 Championship in June and came on as a substitute in the final when Israel were beaten 3-1 in extra time.

The teenager is yet to face a challenge playing under Mikel Arteta in the first-team but is likely keen on another loan move after enjoying his time at Lincoln.

In March he said: “I’m on loan to get as many minutes as possible and play senior football. My credit is good and so is she [Arsenal] I’m happy with my improvements and progress so we’ll see what happens when I come back.

“I think coming here is the best thing for me and getting a string of games in men’s football has helped me a lot more than playing in the 23s. but it’s not as easy as coming from a Premier League club and playing somewhere else.

“It’s a different ball game in the Football League and it’s a lot harder to play than 23’s because of the physicality and the speed.”
