Arsenal youth team expert Jeorge Bird writes on his blog that Mazeed Ogungbo has signed scholarship terms with Arsenal.
The central defender has recorded 8 appearances for the young Gunners in the U18 Premier League since making his debut in April 2018 and also featured in the FA Youth Cup and U18 Premier League Cup as a schoolboy.
