Jordan Wynter: Arsenal youngster joins Bristol City

Bristol City have signed Arsenal youngster Jordan Wynter after the midfielder turned down a contract extension at the Emirates Stadium.

The 19-year-old has agreed a two-year deal, with the prospect of first-team football a key factor in the move.

Wynter was at Arsenal from the age of eight and signed a first professional contract with the Gunners last summer.

"Excited to finally declare I have signed for Bristol City," Wynter said on Twitter. 

"Looking forward to the season coming up. Thanking Arsenal for everything."

Wynter is Robins boss Sean O'Driscoll's first summer acquisition as he prepares the club for life in League One next season.
