Arsenal have confirmed the signing of defender Cohen Bramall from Hednesford Town.

The Premier League side, who currently sit fifth in the English top-flight standings following their latest 3-3 draw away at AFC Bournemouth, have snapped up the highly-rated left-back from the Northern League Premier Division outfit.

The 20-year-old, who made one appearance for Crystal Palace reserves during an unsuccessful trial back in November 2016, will work with Steve Gatting and the Gunners’ Under-23 squad.

Bramall, who had scored one goal in 26 appearances in all competitions for Hednesford this term, proved a social media hit after a video of him executing a exceptional rabona assist against Frickley Athletic in September went viral (Below).

Growing up, Arsenal’s new signing ran for Crewe and Nantwich Athletics Club, with his blistering pace a major reason for manager Arsene Wenger making a move for the non-league talent.
