A 17-year-old has signed his first professional contract with Arsenal.

Tyreece John-Jules has been involved in the Gunners u18 and u23 sides this season and has impressed bosses so much, they have offered him a contract.

Tyreece is a former student at Whitefield School in Brent Cross.

The striker's idol is Arsenal's legendary former forward Thierry Henry and he has been coached by the Frenchman twice in his career.

On Thierry, he said: "He taught me about movement and timing, and obviously gave me tips on finishing when we did striker drills."

Tyreece has been at Arsenal since the age of nine.
