Chuks Aneke

League One side Crewe Alexandra have re-signed Arsenal midfielder Chuks Aneke on a six-month loan deal.

Former England Under-19 international Aneke, 20, scored eight goals in 38 appearances during two loan spells at Gresty Road last season.

Crewe are waiting for confirmation from the Football Association that he was signed in time to face Rotherham.

"We know the talent he has and he will be a good addition to the squad," Crewe boss Steve Davis told the club website.

"I initially saw the ability he had and asked the supporters to have patience with him. They did that and in the end we saw what a huge talent he is."

Davis also confirmed that midfielder Abdul Osman has been named club captain, beating off competition from Adam Dugdale and Harry Davis.
