10-year-old Kenyan wonderkid Leo Messo has joined the prestigious Arsenal Academy, popularly known as Hale End.
The Gunners signed Messo, who was previously developing his skills at West Ham United, on a scholarship on Wednesday as part of the latest intake.
The youngster was pictured alongside Arsenal academy manager Per Mertesacker and held a no. 9 jersey that has his name.
Following his switch to North London, Messo will be aiming to follow in the footsteps of other Arsenal academy graduates such as Bukayo Saka, Eddie Nketiah, Smith Rowe, Joe Willock, Maitland-Niles, among others.
Meso lives in Essex, London with his parents, who are originally from Busia County.
Kenyans took to social media to congratulate the boy, saying they cannot wait to see their compatriot grow and play at the Emirates Stadium.
No player from Kenya has represented Arsenal at the senior level.
