Transfer news: Philip Roberts needs first team football
Arsenal youngster Philip Roberts is set to move to SPL side Inverness Caledonian Thistle.
The 18-year-old is highly rated at the Emirates and this move is seen to expose the Republic of Ireland youth international to regular football.
“Arsenal have agreed to let Philip sign for us until the next transfer window and we’re very grateful for their help,” said Inverness boss Terry Butcher.
“This is the beginning of a partnership with Arsenal that will help their younger players gain first-team experience with Inverness Caley Thistle in this season and the future.
“I am extremely thankful to Liam Brady for his first-class help and assistance.
“Philip has had a look at our set-up, met the lads, and has agreed to join is. He showed good promise when training with us.
“The paperwork has not been completed yet, but we’re hopeful it will all be done in time for him to be registered before Friday’s deadline.”
