Norwegian club pass up opportunity to sign Arsenal's African-born winger

Norwegian club Sandefjord have opted against signing Arsenal's African-born winger George Lewis, according to the online edition of Tromsø-based newspaper iTromsø.

 

Lewis trained at the Eliteserien outfit last week with a view to a transfer but has not been offered a deal following the conclusion of the trials.

 

Born in Kigali, Rwanda, Lewis joined Arsenal in August 2020 following a successful trial and used to share the same agent as Nigerian-born midfielder Tim Akinola.

 

Touted to be one of the rising stars of Norwegian football two years ago, the Norwegian-Rwandan has not managed to break into the Arsenal first team.

 

Lewis is not age-eligible to be included on Arsenal's Premier League 2, Premier League and Europa League rosters as an U21 player, which puts his future at the Emirates Stadium in doubt.

 

This summer, Arsenal have loaned out Lewis's former U23 teammates at Arsenal including Arthur Okonkwo, Folarin Balogun, Ryan Alebiosu, Mazeed Ogungbo and Ovie Ejeheri.
