Arsenal have announced the signing of 20-year-old defender Rob Holding, who joins on a long-term deal from Bolton Wanderers.
The youngster won the player of the season award with the Trotters last season as well as the Toulon Tournament with the England under-21 side this summer.
And now he makes the step up to Premier League football with the Gunners.
The 20-year-old enjoyed a promising first senior campaign in 2015/16, making 30 appearances for Bolton and winning the club’s player of the season award.
This summer, Rob helped England Under-21s to victory in the Toulon tournament in France alongside Calum Chambers.
Rob is a versatile player, comfortable at both centre back and full back, and we look forward to him joining up with the squad. His transfer is subject to the completion of regulatory processes.
