Arsenal Teammate Picks Olowu As Captain Material, Akinola Most Committed Academy Player
Speaking to Arsenal's Matchday Programme ahead of tonight's Premier League clash against Crystal Palace, Jonathan Dinzeyi was asked to give the lowdown on his teammates in the Arsenal Academy.

A former England U18 international, Dinzeyi, who is represented by Nigerian agent Emeka Obasi, joined Arsenal from fellow north London club Tottenham Hotspur last August.

The central defender admitted he heard so much about Folarin Balogun before linking up with the Gunners, labeling him a prolific goalscorer and recalled that Tolaji Bola made him feel so welcome when he received his first call up to the Young Lions.

Asked to name the academy player who will definitely make it, Dinzeyi went for Miguel Azeez, adding that the Spanish-Nigerian has the best touch of all the academy players.

On the most committed player, Dinzeyi chose Tim Akinola, picked Joseph Olowu and Folarin Balogun as a captain material and most confident player respectively.

There's Nigerian interest in tonight's clash at the Emirates Stadium in London; ex-Arsenal trainee Eberechi Eze is in contention to face his former employer and goalkeeper Arthur Okonkwo has a little chance of making Arsenal's matchday 20 having trained with the first team for most part of this week.
