Arsenal have sold 19-year-old goalkeeper Josh Vickers to Swansea, the Welsh club have announced.

“I’m really pleased to have signed my contract with the club,” said Vickers. “I have been here five or six weeks now, taking part in some great matches and feel I have settled in well.

“It's going to be great to work with Tony (Roberts) and Lukasz (Fabianski) again and everyone has welcomed me really well.

“Tony called and asked if I would come in on trial. I know how much knowledge he has of the game, I have worked with him the last four years and I couldn't turn down the opportunity.

“This club is going in the right direction. How the first team performed last year is breathing confidence though the whole team, it is a club on the up and its great to be a part of.

The deal that sees Vickers join up with Lukazs Fabianski and Tony Roberts (both ex-Arsenal), comes just a day after the loan of Argentine 'keeper Emi Martinez to Wolves.

Arsenal's haemorrhaging of 'keepers seems to suggest they may yet sign another as 3rd choice before the window shuts, much like they did with Emiliano Viviano two seasons ago.
