Arsenal sign German midfielder Spanoudakis from Barcelona

Arsenal have signed central- midfielder Georgios Spanoudakis from Barcelona, with the youngster making his debut as the U18s beat Lincoln City 1-0 this evening.
The 15 year old is a German youth international and also has Greek ancestry. Born in November 1998, Spanoudakis will still be a schoolboy for the forthcoming campaign, but should still feature regularly for the U18s. He is the seventh new signing for the youth team following the acquisitions of Kristopher Da Graca, Ben Sheaf, Elias Hatzitheodoridis, Hugo Keto, Jonatas Centeno and Savvas Mourgos.
Having started his development at Eintracht Frankfurt’s youth set-up, Spanoudakis moved to Barcelona in 2009 and is known for his technical skills and passing ability.

Lincoln had a penalty saved early on by Arsenal goalkeeper Ryan Huddart before the Gunners scored what proved to be the only goal of the game courtesy of a spectacular free-kick from Sheaf. The deep-lying midfielder, who recently joined from West Ham United, was Arsenal’s star performer on the evening.
Da Graca, Chatzitheodoridis and Mourgos also made their debuts for the club.
