Ben Sheaf shoots past Jake Cooper of Millwall

According to Football London, Arsenal are willing to let go of youngster Ben Sheaf this summer.

The 23-year-old has spent this campaign on loan in the Championship at Coventry City and has made 29 appearances in all competitions. He has shown encouraging signs at the club and would love to continue playing first team football.

The decision to let Sheaf go will please the Coventry City hierarchy as the Championship club hold an option to sign the player permanently when his loan deal expires at the club. The youngster has impressed the club officials and they are more than happy to turn this loan signing into a permanent one by the end of the campaign if everything goes accordingly.

Sheaf was on loan in the previous campaign as well. The Gunners youngster spent last season on loan in League One at Doncaster Rovers and was a key player for them under Darren Moore. The former England U18 international made 38 appearances for the Yorkshire side, scoring two goals, and providing three assists. The outstanding form in League One helped him secure a loan move to Championship last summer and he has since been a regular for Coventry this term.

The midfielder is a former academy product of Arsenal rivals, West Ham United. He made the switch to their London rivals as a youngster in 2014. Sheaf has never made a senior appearance for the Gunners.

Sheaf had his first loan move with League Two side Stevenage before joining Doncaster for the 2019/2020 campaign. Arsenal will allow him to leave this summer as they don’t see him as a future first team player and Coventry are in pole position to sign him permanently for upcoming seasons.
