Official: Arsenal loan out Nigerian prospect to Crawley Town

Arsenal defender Mazeed Ogungbo has joined Crawley Town on a season-long loan.

Former Arsenal U23 coach Kevin Betsy will be reunited with the 19-year-old at the League Two club.

The Republic of Ireland youth player, who is also eligible for Nigeria, signed his first professional deal with Arsenal last summer.

“We have managed to secure a really talented young player in Mazeed, an amazing character,” Betsy told the Crawley website.

“He’s a very good defender who is quick and has the ability to play in three positions. He is a great addition to the squad and will add competition for places in the back line.”
