Balogun joins Middlesborough on loan

Highly-rated Arsenal forward Folarin Balogun has moved to Middlesborough on loan for the remainder of the season, both clubs confirmed on Wednesday afternoon.

Balogun, who fell behind Eddie Nketiah in the pecking order this season, will be getting his first serious taste of first team football, and will be hoping to leave his mark with the north east club, lifting them into the top flight in the process.

Far too good for U23 football anymore, it is hoped that the loan move sees him come back a player ready to fight it out with whichever new striker Arsenal sign for a first team spot next season.

And, for those worried that perhaps they may lose the starlet soon, Balogun has now confirmed his intentions beyond this loan spell.

The Arsenal man revealed:

“The goal is definitely still to make it Arsenal. Coming through the ranks and making it to the first team was something I was always wanting to do.”

For a club that prides itself on its Hale End graduates, Arsenal will be hoping he can follow in the footsteps of Bukayo Saka and Emile Smith Rowe, who have done just that.
