Arsenal’s young versatile player Nico Yennaris has signed a contract extension with Arsenal as confirmed by official website Arsenal.com.
While the youngster prefers to play in central midfield, his versatility has seen him break into the senior side in defensive positions.
The up-and-coming 19 year-old featured for the Arsenal first-team last season when the club went through an injury crisis, making his Premier League debut at right-back against Premier League heavyweights Manchester United.
Overall Yennaris made one Premier League appearance and two League Cup appearances for the senior side in the 2011/12 season, playing in defense in all three matches.
Nico has also featured heavily in pre-season, playing in the Markus Liebherr Memorial Cup and featuring in two of the three matches in Arsenal’s Tour of the Far East.
Hopefully Yennaris enjoys a successful career at Arsenal in years to come and continues to progress!
