Arsenal have confirmed that Mazeed Ogungbo will spend the 2022/23 season on loan at Crawley Town.

The 19-year-old defender signed his first professional contract with the Gunners 12 months ago and heads to Broadfield Stadium to gain experience of senior football.

He’s been recruited by Kevin Betsy who joined Crawley as manager in the summer after a year coaching Arsenal’s under-23s for whom Ogungbo played 25 times last season.

“We have managed to secure a really talented young player in Mazeed, an amazing character,” Betsy told the Crawley website.

“A very good defender who is quick and has the ability to play in three positions. He is a great addition to the squad and will add competition for places in the back line.”

Best of luck to Mazeed in League Two.
