Arsenal to let young TRIO leave

Arsene Wenger has so much top-quality youthful talent at the club that he doesn’t have room for it all so he is planning on letting a trio prove themselves elsewhere on long-term loan deals

Why not join the debate at the COS forum?

Arsenal are sending young defenders Havard Nordtveit and Pedro Botelho on loan to Spanish Segunda Liga Salamanca.
Salamanca have confirmed the agreement today, with both players expected to go straight into their starting line-up for the season kick-off against Alaves on August 31. (

The amount of starlets with real ability on offer to Wenger is frankly mind-boggling so it’s no surprise that the French genius has decided to let a few of his players fly the nest to show what they can do at a higher level rather than using them in reserve and youth duty. The future of the club appears to be very secure for a great many years and the investment in the club’s academy, scouting and youth team help to make the north London club one of the more financially stable sides in the Premier League. Do Gunners fans think that the likes of Vela, Wilshere and Randall will make an impact this season or is still too soon to throw them in at the deep end?
