It looks like Arsenal youngster Samir Carruthers is about to sign for Fulham in another nod to the recent improvements in our youth set-up.

Carruthers, who is highly rated at Ashburton Grove, attracted the attention of our new Academy director Huw Jennings (for a revealing interview with him see here) and he was invited to take a look round Motspur Park earlier this month.

He would become the second youth signing from Arsenal in recent years making the same move as Keanu Marsh-Brown.
