Arsenal youngster Chuks Aneke says he did not hesitate to join Crewe Alexandra on loan when he was offered the chance of first-team football.
Aneke will spend the next month with the Railwaymen after undertaking two loan spells in League One with Stevenage and Preston North End last season.
The midfielder has made just one first-team appearance for Arsenal and is looking forward to the opportunity to play for Steve Davis' Crewe.
"I'm really delighted to come to Crewe because I have heard some really good things about the club," the 19-year-old told the club's official website.
"Now I just can't wait to get started. As soon as I heard there was interest from Crewe, I wanted to come.
"Everybody knows about Crewe. They like to play their young players and the football that they like to play. They like to bring through talented players, and I am obviously a young player who wants to play games too.
"I feel like I am ready to test myself. At the moment I think it is vital that I go out and play some games. I am desperate to show what I can do, and hopefully I can do that here at Crewe. I am raring to go."
