Brighton & Hove Albion have secured a deal for Arsenal youngster Tom Dallison, Sky Sports understands.
The Championship side have been keeping close tabs on the 17-year-old, who has already spent time on trial on the South Coast.
A number of clubs had shown an interest in Dallison, who joined Arsenal from West Ham in the summer.
Now Brighton have agreed terms and have landed the player on a two-and-a-half-year deal.
As Dallison was only on scholarship terms with Arsenal, Brighton are able to sign him now and the Premier League club have sanctioned his move.
